"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."
