Anyone have code or Instructor Answers for Deital How to Program Java 2 (3rd edition)? You can email me directly at if you need to.
Thanks all.

Did you buy the book? If so you should have the code and answers. If not it would be unethical to get them from somewhere else.
hmmmm Instructor Answers
Trying to cheat are we??? :roll:

Contact your text book rep. They can connect you with the Instructor Support items - Note that e/4 has just been re-released and e5 is the current edition.

Yes, I bought the book, but it only comes with a CD which contains a copy of examples in the book. I'm not a student or anything, and since it's a college textbook, the answers are technically not available. I've got most of them, just not all of them. It helps a lot to have a frame of reference to see how someone else solved a particular problem, or to train my mind to start thinking like they're trying to teach you to think. Without human interaction, it's all I've got.

Cindy, the book doesn't come with the answers. They come on the "Instructor's Resource CD". Only certain people, (like those with "Associate instructor" in their signature) can get it.
There are a couple of things you can try. First find out who the rep is for your local college. You can find that out from the Prentice-Hall web site. Then you can send him an email and ask him if he has an old copy of the instructor's CD that he can send you. If not, you can try sending an email to Deitel (check their web site). Since it is for an old copy of the book they might be willing to send it to you even though it is supposed to be for professors only.
