For introductory Computer Science courses using Java (CS1with Java), and other introductory programming courses in departments of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer Information Systems, Management Information Systems, Information Technology, and Business.

 

Trusted authors Savitch and Carrano examine problem solving and programming techniques with Java. Students are introduced to object-oriented programming and important concepts such as design, testing and debugging, programming style, interfaces inheritance, and exception handling. The Java coverage is a concise, accessible introduction that covers key language features. Objects are covered thoroughly and early in the text, with an emphasis on application programs over applets. Revised throughout for enhanced clarity, the Fifth Edition has been entirely redesigned with a more accessible feel.
