Book: Object-Oriented Programming: From Problem Solving to Java
Publisher: Charles River
Object-Oriented Programming: From Problem Solving to Java provides a thorough, easy-to-follow reference to master object-oriented programming principles. Throughout the text, problem solving and programming techniques are presented in modeling diagrams, pseudo-code, and flowcharts. Users then learn how to put theory into practice using actual Java code. Unlike “cookbook” guides—where users blindly follow the instructions—this book encourages users to explore their problem solving creativity, and then test their ideas in a real-world environment. By first learning the concepts involved in object-oriented programming, and then learning how to put them into use, readers not only learn Java, but they also learn how to become more efficient programmers.
Encourages users to find creative, practical solutions to programming problems, and allows them to test their ideas with object-oriented programming
Uses pseudocode to describe a problem’s solution; then uses Java as the implementation language
Organized to follow introductory courses in programming principles; exercise sets and “key terms” are included to reinforce concepts
Provides a gentle learning curve to those with little or no programming experience, taking novice users to a higher level of proficiency
