Hello,

I dearly hope I am posting in the right area. My question is when ding the cod Magnets in Java head first, should i be using the compiler or should i try and right it out with paper and pencil. I have been using the compiler and working the code out like that. Is that cheating me out of an education?

Hello Jamal,
I suggest, you do both.. You can first work out the code with paper and pencil, and then go on and check whether the code is working by compiling it..
That way you will know where you are wrong and what thing you need to improve.. Also using compiler, you will get to know different kinds of errors you can get.
Which is also important..
