Data Structures and Other Objects Using Java

New or Used: 2 copies from $110.98
In this book, author Michael Main takes a gentle approach to the data structures course in Java. The text offers an early, self-contained review of object-oriented programming and Java to give students a firm grasp of key concepts, and allows students with a variety of backgrounds to adjust easily. This book offers a flexibility that allows professors such options as emphasizing object-oriented programming, covering recursion and sorting early, or accelerating the pace of the course. MainIs book meets the needs of professors searching for a book to balance the introduction of object-oriented programming and data structures with Java. Features *Offers a flexible ordering of topics so professors can tailor the book to meet their course needs *Teaches students how to specify, design, implement, and use classes based on the Java Class Libraries *Consistently uses a five-step method for working with data types to ensure students have a thorough knowledge of the subject: understand the data type abstractly, write a specification, use the data type, design and implement the data type, and analyze the implementation *Shows students how to write Java Applets to test newly implemented data structures 0201357445B04062001
