I am going to be teaching a course in beginning Java and am evaluating books to use. So far I haven't found a 1.4 book adequate for students. Is Horton's book complete enough for this course and if not could someone recommend one that is?

I teach "Intro to Java" at Hofstra University and I use the Horton book. I think it works very well as a textbook. I like it much more than the Deitel&Deitel books.

I agree with Thomas. This book is a very good textbook for a structured learning environment.
