Hi there!

As other posts I have submitted indicate, I love the puzzles that are included in the Head First texts ("fridge magnets", "Be the compiler", "Pool Puzzle")

Are there any other texts available that are littered with challenges and games for programming logic? I'm not just talking about regular tasks/assignments/programming questions, although, if a text includes those together with puzzles and challenges I would sure like to know about them!

It beats Sudoku in my eyes!

Cheers

Mike

Mike,

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for (and I haven't personally looked at this book yet), but if you haven't done so already, you might want to check out Java Puzzlers

HTH,

Thanks Dave!

I've read the Amazon reviews, and it definitely seems interesting! I may very well order it.
