Looking for simple practice programs
I'm fairly new to JAVA (6 weeks and counting) and I'm trying to find somewhere I can get simple practice programs that I can write. I realize that I can make anything up on my own and "have at it" but I was hoping I could find a resource that I can compare the finished program to when I'm finished to see how overly-complicated I made my code or to figure out what I'm doing incorrectly in my program. I've done all of the examples in my book so far in both the chapters and the appendix and I've started lurking on the forums to see some of the programs that other beginners are working on and doing those myself. The only issue with those is that I have no way of seeing how far off base I am.
Re: Looking for simple practice programs
what i did when i first started and what i still do is make some program anything...then i go back through the program and see what i can learn to make the code more efficient...also getting errors and exceptions and working through them is very very valuable because exception handling comes into play A LOT so the more problems you have the more you will learn really.... you WILL see those same problems later...also coming on this forum and looking at all the questions asked and the answers given has helped me a ton
i read somewhere that is pretty true im finding out hahaha "programming is 10% writing code and 90% fixing it"
