About the Product

Teach your students how to use Java to transform program logic and design concepts into working programs with Smith's JAVA™ PROGRAMS TO ACCOMPANY PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, 7E. Specifically designed to be paired with the latest edition of Farrell's highly successful PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, this guide combines the power of Java with the popular, language-independent, logical approach of the PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN text. Together, the two books provide the perfect opportunity for those who want to learn the fundamentals of programming, while also learning an actual leading programming language. This guide combines clear explanations of concepts and syntax with pseudocode, complete programming examples, numerous visuals, and actual every day and business Java code examples. Students practice concepts with both lab exercises and many new handwritten practice opportunities in each section. With JAVA™ PROGRAMS TO ACCOMPANY PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, 7E, readers discover how real Java code functions while still mastering concepts and taking advantage of the strengths of a traditional language-independent logic and design course.


  • INTERACTIVE LAB EXERCISES CHALLENGE STUDENTS WITH PRACTICAL, HANDS-ON WORK. Each section of every chapter provides numerous, useful lab exercises that let students apply newly-learned logic and design concepts in Java.

  • COMPLETE PROGRAMMING EXAMPLES DEMONSTRATE APPLICATIONS FROM START TO FINISH. Students see how an application is built from beginning to end as this edition's complete programming examples focus on every day and practical business situations without requiring special mathematics or accounting knowledge.

  • ENGAGING PRESENTATION AND CLEAR EXPLANATIONS COMBINE WITH ABUNDANT VISUALS FOR A COMPLETE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Students understand the Java concepts presented with the help of proven explanations and abundant visuals, including clear figures, meaningful illustrations, and screen captures of program outputs.

  • TEN CONCISE CHAPTERS CORRESPOND WITH CONTENT IN PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN TEXT. This edition's ten chapters work seamlessly with both the Comprehensive and Introductory versions of Farrell's PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, 7E. A mapping grid on the Instructor Companion Web site helps you efficiently use this Java book with Farrell's AN OBJECT-ORIENTED APPROACH TO PROGRAMMING LOGIC AND DESIGN, 4E text if desired.
