Reviews of : Core Java Volume I–Fundamentals by Cay S. Horstmann PDF Book
Inside this Book – Soon after I started the book I began questioning the value of reading a book like this cover to cover. If you know a few (or maybe even one) programming languages, theres only so much to learn in a new one. Right? Why is this book so big? There are two reasons. First, the standard library. The majority of this book deals with the Java class library, it’s features, its usage and best practices. Large chapters devote themselves to specific parts of the standard libraries, especially the chapters on GUI programming. Second, most books teaching you a programming language assume you don’t know any other language beforehand and teach things from the ground up. And that is often necessary too, because langauges differ in their idioms and in their way of composing programs. A language is not just a language, it is also the standard library, the tooling, the ecosystem, the philosophy.
Inside this book –Core Java Volume I–Fundamentals PDF Book by Cay S. Horstmann – I had already been programming in Java for a couple of years when I started this book. There were times when I wasted a lot of my time because I had misunderstood a thing or the other about Java. Like one time I struggled with a bug because I didn’t know you had to provide a correct implementation of hashCode() for equals() to behave correctly. There were gaping holes in my knowledge of Java, and I hoped that this book would patch them. And except for the ‘enterprise’ parts of Java, it has done a good job in that. But still the question remains. Should I just have read the relevant parts of the documentation when I wanted to know something? Or used this book as a reference instead of reading it cover-to-cover? I think so. Reading a thousand-page book in this way is not an efficient way of learning a programming language.
