Hi I recently got Heads First Java and I love it stuff is slowly making more sence but I noticed in the book there are not many exercies to do. They have like the code managnet one but thats about it there is no real questions where they want you to do something and you go try to figure it out.

I am looking for something what fufills that and has the answer code with it so I check if I did it write. I am looking for some questions that are not too mathy. It is ok if they give you like the formual but I just don't want it to sit there and read up on how to do the math formulas before I get to the java.

I am starting chapter 4.

Thxs

Michael,
The free online Thinking in Java has a lot of exercises. Another good place to find exercises/projects is the website for a college course. I know nyu.edu has a bunch.

Yes you have.

Programming is very close to math. If you flunked math you're very unlikely to become a very successful programmer.

Lol I never said I flunked math. I actualy don't do quite to bad in math, I am not the greatest but I am ok at it. I get pretty good marks in it I just like to have exercises where they want you to do all this mathy stuff and don't even tell you the forumals I really don't feel like reading how to do the math part of it for hours.

I rather just do simplier ones so I learn the programming aspect of it for now. I rather have the hours to go to learning to program and then once I understand then look at harder exercises what use more advanced math.

Hey Michael -

It's good to do a lot of exercises, and as you get a little further into the book there are lots! Chapters 5 and 6 have a pretty good project, and then starting in chapter 11, and for the rest of the book there are LOTS of exercises!

hth,

Bert
