    Default Help w/ Java Class.

    I have recently enrolled in a Java class and need some extra help writing a program. This weeks work includes making the user input 1 2 3 or 4 depending on what type of shape they want the area of, and then the user will put in the required measurements for whatever shape they picked. I have a pretty good idea of what im doing, but I just need some extra help and it would be extremely appreciated. My skype is logan.crone ( text, not video chat )

    Start by making a list of what steps the program needs to do to solve the problem.
    Then start with the first step in the list and expand on it and then try to code it.

    Then you will likely want to read the tutorials or your book to get a better handle on things. There are some great tutorials that you can find here: The Really Big Index

    I already have a book, but I feel I could read it a million times and It wouldn't have effect, I have to see how things are put together and study them.

    The tutorial has lots of examples. If you read through some of the pages, you will find links to pages full of examples.
