Today I was able to gain access to my course materials for the Java class I’m taking at a local college and they were plentiful. I started reading over them to get an idea of what’s expected this semester. It looks like a lot will be required, but there is a lot of material to cover and hopefully exercises to reinforce it. I’m hopeful and excited all at the same time. Since there was no coding that I could do without having read the first chapter, I’ve taken to Codeacademy (as was suggested in the course CMS) to get some experience on Java.
I emailed the materials to my Kindle so I can read them during my commute. I’m going to keep at Codeacademy and my Java in 21 days book until I reach a real assignment. There is plenty of reading that’s required. I hope the amount of doing matches up.
