- Bigger than Lord of the Rings. (The JavaPosse)
... I can recommend no book more highly than the classic Thinking In Java, by Bruce Eckel ...
the book doesn't just have examples; it's practically built of examples.
(Dr. Dobb's Journal Portal)
... I wish I had this book when I started programming. I recommend this book to every student as well
as beginner and intermediate Java programmer. This book would also serve as a guide to those who would
wish to write the Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP) certification exam. It also introduces design
patterns and testing which is really good since we see programmers writing 100ís of lines of code
with no design pattern being used or a single test case being written often.
Get this book and become a better Java programmer.
