This book takes up where Java Programming - A Beginner's Course leaves off. It assumes you have a working knowledge of basic programming concepts such as variables, constants, assignment, selection (if..else) and looping (while, for). It also assumes you are comfortable with writing functions and working with arrays. If you are not, it is recommended that you study Java Programming - A Beginner's Course before tackling the material in this book. As in the first book, the emphasis is not on teaching the Java language, per se, but rather, on using Java to teach concepts that any budding programmer should know. The major topics covered include an introduction to objects, searching, sorting, linked lists, stacks, queues, recursion, random numbers and file-handling.
