    Default CLASS BOOK HELP. Please. Please.

    sorry for my english but im really so desperate. This is due next week monday, and i don't know what do to or even where to start. Our professor didn't explain this homework , she just gave us a photocopy problem, we dont have any reference to look at. soo i hope you guys can help me.

    HERE'S THE PROBLEM:

    a.) Some of characteristis of a book are the title, author(s), publisher, ISBN, price, and year of publication. Design the class book that defines the book as an ADT.

    Each object of the *class BOOK* can hold the following information about a book; title, up to four authors, publisher, ISBN, price, year of publication, and number of copies in stock. To keep track of the numbers of authors, add another instance variable.

    Include the methods to perform various operations on the objects of *Book*. For example, the usual operation that can be performed on the title are to show the title, set the title, and check whether operations a title is actual title of the book. Add similar operations for the publisher, ISBN, book price, and authors. Add the appropriate constructors.

    THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME!

    Organize your instructions in a manner that makes sense for solving the problem. Then work on the steps involved in solving the problem.

    Ask specific questions, and post code and errors when you have problems.

    I think that most of us have learned most of our programming knowledge by teaching ourselves, so this is quite do-able. I suggest a little less blaming of your instructors and a little more diligence towards study as the best solution for you. No one likes to see a homework dump, but most will happily help assist you if you show evidence of effort, so please feel free to come on back if you have any specific answerable questions. Best of luck.
