BEGINNING JAVA FOR  ADULTS (Table of Contents) is an “adult version” of our popular JAVA FOR HIGHSCHOOL KIDS – the primary difference between the two versions is that BEGINNING JAVA FOR ADULTS has more adult projects. It is an introduction to computer programming that provides an interactive, self-paced tutorial to the Java programming language using “adult” example projects. This course is written for the absolute beginner!

BEGINNING JAVA FOR ADULTS is a tutorial consisting of 10 chapters explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Java application. You learn about project design, object-oriented programming, console applications, graphics applications and many elements of the Java language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects to illustrate the practicality of Java.  These projects include loan calculators, graphics programs, portfolio managers, checkbook balancers, and even a simple video game (Project Screen Shots)! 

BEGINNING JAVA FOR ADULTS is presented using a combination of over 400 pages of course notes and actual Java examples. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using a computer operating system (simple editing, file maintenance, understanding directory structures, working on the Internet) is expected.
