"My 14 year old son used the Beginning Java for High School Students course in the past semester, and we found it to be time and money well spent. We were able to set up the software without much trouble, and he was able to get right to work with minimal help needed at that point. He has gained great exposure to basic Java concepts and capabilities over the past 3 months. We will definitely use products from your company again in the future!"

"Beginning Java is one of THE BEST step by step instruction guides to learning Java. I was a C programmer and bought this book to teach myself Java. It was money well spent as I have kept it on my desk as a Reference guide." - Sherine Grant, IT Specialist
BEGINNING JAVATM FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS <Table of Contents> is a tutorial consisting of 10 chapters explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Java application. Students learn about project design, object-oriented programming, console applications, graphics applications and many elements of the Java language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for students to build and try. These projects include a number guessing game, a card game, an allowance calculator, a state capitals game, Tic-Tac-Toe, a simple drawing program, and even a basic video game <Project Screen Shots>. We have also included several college prep bonus projects including a loan calculator, portfolio manager, and a checkbook balancer to get you ready for college.
BEGINNING JAVATM FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS is presented using a combination of over 400 pages of course notes and actual Java examples. This material should be understandable to students aged 15 and up. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using a computer operating system (simple editing, file maintenance, understanding directory structures, working on the Internet) is expected.
