Description:

This text is intended for a 1-, 2-, or 3-semester CS1 course sequence. Comprehensive coverage of Java and programming make this a useful reference for beginning programmers and IT professionals.Daniel Liang teaches concepts of problem-solving and object-oriented programming using a fundamentals-first approach. Beginning programmers learn critical problem-solving techniques then move on to grasp the key concepts of object-oriented, GUI programming, advanced GUI and Web programming using Java. Liang approaches Java GUI programming using JavaFX, not only because JavaFX is much simpler for new Java programmers to learn and use but because it has replaced Swing as the new GUI tool for developing cross-platform-rich Internet applications on desktop computers, on hand-held devices, and on the Web. Additionally, for instructors, JavaFXprovides a better teaching tool for demonstrating object-oriented programming.Teaching and Learning Experience To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program offers:Fundamentals-First Approach: Basic programming concepts are introduced on control statements, loops, functions, and arrays before object-oriented programming is discussed.Problem-Driven Motivation: The examples and exercises throughout the book emphasize problem solving and foster the concept of developing reusable components and using them to create practical projects.A Superior Pedagogical Design that Fosters Student Interest: Key concepts are reinforced with objectives lists, introduction and chapter overviews, easy-to-follow examples, chapter summaries, review questions, programming exercises, and interactive self-tests. The Most Extensive Instructor and Student Support Package Available: The author maintains a website at www.pearsonhighered.com/liang that includes multiple interactive resources.NOTE: 0133761312 9780133761313 Intro to Java Programming, Comprehensive Version, 10/e — this is the standalone book if you want the book/access card order the ISBN below:0133813460 / 9780133813463 Introduction to Java Programming, Comprehensive Version plus MyProgrammingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card PackagePackage consists of: 0133761312 / 9780133761313 Intro to Java Programming, Comprehensive Version0133762513 / 9780133762518 MyProgrammingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card -- for Intro to Java Programming, Comprehensive Version, 10/e
