Independent Evaluation
Nice layout, uses a lot of visuals, good balance between theory and practical problems, computer use in society section for extra depth of knowlege. Self-check for students as they go.  Example programs are explained well.  Teaching of debugging techniques is good.  Use of opensource, publically available IDE is good.  Contains a good varity of projects, and projects at different levels.  Covers What is required for the AP Computer Science curriculum. Would also be a good text for Computer Programming II.

Textbook is hard bound and would hold up in a clasroom. 

Suggestion:  Book should be updated to cover JavaFX instead of Swing.
