Computer Science Applications

Object Oriented Programming (Revised First Edition)
Edited by Joslyn A. Smith

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62131-256-7, 476 pages


Computer Science Applications: Object Oriented Programming is a comprehensive anthology of reference articles for first and second semester Computer Science courses. These articles, drawn from a wide variety of sources and experiences, include detailed discussions, explanations and examples that deliver an engaging learning experience for students. Using high-level concepts, rather than simply focusing on the syntax of Java, this text delivers a complete and in-depth coverage of all the essential topics typically found in the CS1 and CS2 syllabi.

Computer Science Applications is divided into seven sections, each prefaced by an overview of the topic:
  • Classes and Objects
  • Inheritance and Polymorphism
  • Problem Solving Before Programming
  • Java Statements
  • Exception and Exception Handling
  • Data Structure and Algorithms
  • Job Prospects and Career Path
