Auxiliary Materials

Here’s a list of extra resources that may help:

  • MyProgrammingLab is an online coding environment that provides lots of feedback. The MPL problems for Chapters 1-9 are posted and you can approach in a self study fashion.
  • There’s also codingbat and another site called practiceit
  • There’s an excellent text titled “Thinking in Java” by Bruce Eckel. Eckel offers the 3rd edition for free (electronic download). I’m not sure another text is really the best solution — but it’s an option.
  • Coupled with any of the above, situate yourself for a work session in the AEC. That way, as you work through problems, experts will be nearby to get you unstuck quickly. I’ve seen students use this strategy very effectively.
  • Also, remember to post questions on the course’s Help! – I have a question discussion forum, especially if you can’t get to the AEC. Programming is a team sport and together we are stronger!
  • Textbook Student Resource Website -Contains source code for examples in the book
  • Textbook Companion Website -register with book’s scratch-off code. Contains even-numbered solutions, source code for examples in the book, interactive self-testing, animations, errata, bonus chapters and VideoNotes.
