Once again, the Litvins bring you a textbook that expertly covers the subject, is fun to read, and works for students with different learning styles. In one volume, this edition covers both introductory Java/OOP A-level material and AB-level topics (data structures and algorithms). The book follows Java 5.0 and incorporates many other changes, big and small, to reflect the current priorities of the AP CS program. This edition offers an early focus on object-oriented programming and design and an expanded discussion of the Java collections framework. What has not changed is the authors' respect for students, clear explanation of concepts, common sense about practical software development issues, and realistic and fun case studies and labs. By choosing this book, you have joined the many thousands of students who have mastered computer science fundamentals and received high grades on AP CS exams using the Litvins’ C++ and Java books.
