Hi Jeff

Any re-requisite for reading Beginning Java 7?
Should the reader know all about previous versions of Java before 7?

Thanks
Shiv

Hi Shiv,

The only prerequisite for reading Beginning Java 7 is to have some basic programming experience, to be comfortable working in a command-line environment, and to be passionate about learning. I've tried to cover all necessary topics and in a manner that flows smoothly from the start of the book to its end.

In my opinion (and others may differ), you don't need to know about previous Java versions to get the most out of this book.

All the best.

Jeff
