In The Art and Science of Java, Stanford professor and well-known leader in CS Education Eric Roberts emphasizes the student-friendly exposition that led to the success of The Art and Science of C. By following the recommendations of the Association of Computing Machinery's Java Task Force, this first edition text adopts a modern objects-first approach that introduces students to useful hierarchies from the very beginning. Packages are translated into a minimally complex collection of pedagogical resources that make it easier to teach Java while retaining the language's industrial strength.
