If you really want to master Java, it's not enough to know the code. You must begin to think like a programmer, and in this newest edition of his best-selling guide, Java Concepts, programming guru Cay Horstmann shows you how.

Updated to integrate Java 7, Java concepts, Sixth Edition introduces students and readers to fundamental programming techniques and design skills that are crucial to learning how to program. Drawing on his many years of experience as an expert programmer and teacher, Horstmann brings out the most important elements of computing, problem solving, and program design.

In preparing the new edition, special attention was given to the quality and variety of exercise material-from skill-oriented multiple-choice questions to short code-completion exercises to multi-step lab exercises-offering instructors more ways to engage students at different levels, and providing more practice to students who need it.
