Students completing this course satisfactorily will be able to:
The brief 10th edition is the recommended version, it is less expensive than the most recent 11th or 12th edition. For cimp7a and cimp7b, you have no reason to buy the 11th edition or a comprehensive textbook. The comprehensive version is the brief version with additional chapters. If you want a hard copy of a large Java textbook, you can buy a used version of the Comprehensive version. If money is not an issue you can always buy the latest comprehensive 12th edition. For this class an Online $45 PDF is the least expensive option..

Optional if you want the most recent edition you may buy the more expensive 11th edition instead. The author has been very good at adding new Java features to his textbook. However, as a language matures, they tend to add new capacities/features which results in language bloat. Language bloat occurs when a language has features that overlap previous capabilities and are seldom used.
