The required text for the course is Starting Out with Java, From Control Structures through Obejcts, Fourth Edition (Addison Wesley, 2010, ISBN 978-0-13-608020-6) by Tony Gaddis. This is available from the Saint Rose bookstore and elsewhere. Be sure to get the correct edition and the book with this specific title, as this is the latest in a long series of textbooks and the author has written many variations on this text with similar titles. If you plan to take CSC 252 in the future, do not sell your text back at the end of the semester! This text is also used in that course.

You will also need to purchase an access code for an interactive flowcharting tool called Visual Logic that we will use this semester. We have arranged a "bundle" with the publisher where you will get a Java Reference card and the Visual Logic access code at a discount. You should use this link to order your access code and reference card bundle.
