Hi
I am new to java. I want to buy a book in java i.e, Head First Java Code Magnets [With Magnets] O'reilly Media .The cost of the book is 1000 rupees in Indian currency
but i have a doubt , Is this book full of coding examples or full of theory?
I want both theory and practical. Is this book sufficient for me ?

and Head First java, Head First Java Code Magnets [With Magnets] O'reilly Media books both are same or not ?

please reply

thanks in advance

Hi Harivenkatesh,

I'm familiar with the head first java book and it is well worth getting if you are starting out in learning Java.

With regards to the head first java with magnets. Reading this online review:

Head First Code Magnet Kit

Suggests that it contains only magnets and does not come with the head first java book. The magnets are to to aid you to do some of the activities that are contained in the head first java book but are not compulsory to buy as you can do the appropriate exercises without the physical magnets.
