Instructors materials for
Murachs Java SE 6
If you're a trainer or instructor who would like to use this book for a course, we offer a complete package of student and instructor's materials. That includes a Student Workbook, an Instructor's CD, and tutorials that make it easier to use the book with any of three popular IDEs: Eclipse, NetBeans, and BlueJ.
For a detailed look at these materials and how you can use them in your course, please view the Instructor's Summary that we've prepared (it's a PDF document). Then, to request the Instructor's CD, please email us or call us at 1-800-221-5528.
The Student Workbook includes study aids like objectives and terminology lists, plus projects that ask the students to develop applications from scratch (in contrast to the exercises in the book, which include more direction). This Workbook is a PDF document that can be downloaded from this web site, and it's also available on the Instructor's CD.
The Instructor's CD includes everything else you need for running an effective course, including:
- PowerPoint slides for classroom presentations
- Source code and data for all of the applications in the book
- Starting code and test data for the exercises in the book
- Solutions to the exercises in the book
- Student projects (the ones in the downloadable Student Workbook)
- Solutions to the student projects
- A test bank in Exam View, WebCT, and Blackboard formats
- The Student Workbook (so you can distribute it to your students instead of having them download it)
Because the PowerPoint slides include the critical information that's in the figures of the book, they make it easy for you to review any topics that your students have trouble with in class. Then, the book exercises give your students the practice they need; the tests that you can create from the test bank let you measure your students' comprehension; and the projects let your students prove that they can apply what they've learned as they develop complete applications.
Tutorials on Eclipse, NetBeans, and BlueJ
To make it easier for you to use our book with any of these popular IDEs, we provide free, downloadable tutorials on their operation. For Eclipse and NetBeans, that includes tutorials on how to use them with a GUI builder, along with versions of the applications and exercise starts that will run under the IDEs.
