Welcome to Java and Java How to Program, Sixth Edition! At Deitel & Associates, we write computer science textbooks and professional books. This book was a joy to create.
The design of the book has been completely revised. This new design uses color, fonts and various design elements to enhance a student's learning experience.
All of this has been carefully scrutinized by a team of 37 distinguished academic and industry reviewers.
We believe that this book and its support materials have everything instructors and students need for an informative, interesting, challenging and entertaining Java educational experience. In this Preface, we overview various conventions used in the book, such as syntax coloring the code examples, "code washing" and code highlighting. We discuss the software bundled with the book as well as the comprehensive suite of educational materials that help instructors maximize their students' learning experience, including the Instructor's Resource CD, PowerPointR Slide lecture notes, lab manual, companion Web site, course management systems, SafariX (Pearson Education's WebBook publications) and more.
