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 more than what is required for the AP Computer Science curriculum, so there would be opportunities for more advanced learning.  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.
