          The Java 7 pocket Guide is a handy book to have at your workstation. As a software engineering student that is bouncing back and forth between multiple languages this book has become an invaluable tool. The guide is full of useful information without the padding that a 'teach yourself' book would have.

            Little programming books are often great. Java Pocket Guide is great for those who know Java. Read it just before starting a java program or before reading an advanced book or before talking to another programmer. No cruft here--just the guts.
