KEY BENEFIT: Written for AP students, Introduction to Java Programming: AP Edition covers all Java programming material and concepts required as part of the AP Computer Science A curriculum. Daniel Liang teaches concepts of problem-solving and object-oriented programming using a fundamentals-first approach and effectively communicates critical problem-solving techniques to beginning programmers. The text focuses on problem solving through Java programming and emphasizes both imperative and object-oriented problem solving and design. It is divided into two parts: in the first, readers learn the fundamental concepts and techniques of selection statements, loops, methods, and arrays, before building on this foundation in the second part, as the text introduces concepts of object-oriented programming.
KEY TOPICS: Introduction to Computers, Programs, and Java; Elementary Programming; Selections; Mathematical Functions, Characters, and Strings; Loops; Methods; Single-Dimensional Arrays; Multidimensional Arrays; Objects and Classes; Object-Oriented Thinking; Inheritance and Polymorphism; Exception Handling and Text I/O; Abstract Classes and Interfaces; Recursion
MARKET: For anyone interested in all Java programming material and concepts required as part of the AP Computer Science A curriculum.
