Greetings Jacquie!
The description on Amazon mentions that the book uses UML. Not being that familiar w/ UML I was wondering if the book assumes much prior knowledge of UML? What types of UML diagrams are used does the book focus on in describing basic object design?
Thanks!
Mike

My book doesn't use UML until after I've introduced it in Part II, so even if you haven't done a lick of it before, you'll be just fine!
Thanks for asking!

It probably doesn't hurt to mention that the UML is nothing to be afraid of, even if you're a beginner. Introductory UML diagrams are very easy to understand, even with no knowledge of UML.
So, fellow Java greenhorns, if a beginner's book says it uses the UML to help describe concepts, be not afraid. Learning basic UML is very easy and it can be very useful to know when trying to reason your way through writing a program.
