WELCOME TO BCIS 3630 - JAVA   

& INTRODUCTION TO MAINFRAME WITH JAVA

TEXTBOOKS     JAVA - From Control Structures thru Objects, 7th Ed,  by Tony Gaddis,    ISBN 13: 978-0-13-480221-3    

You must BUY THE TEXTBOOK – do not ‘rent’ it as it is also used in BCIS 3680.

Do not get the ‘Electronic’ copy as you will need to write notes in the textbook AND I do not allow electroic devices on during lecture.
