Other Book Resources
The books here are for reference only and do not need to be purchased.   If you want your own copy, these may be available at the UCSD Bookstore, or online
    • Java: An Eventful Approach Paperback – August 8, 2005  by Kim Bruce (Author), Andrea Danyluk (Author), Thomas Murtagh (Author).  ISBN-13: 978-0131424159.    - This is an older textbook and has become dated, some of our assignments will use their objectdraw library.    Any specifics needed from this book will be covered in lecture or section
    • Java in a Nutshell Paperback – November 6, 2014 by Benjamin J Evans (Author), David Flanagan (Author).  ISBN-13: 978-1449370824. This is an up-to-date desktop reference, but is rather weighty at 418 pages
Academic Integrity
All assignments are to be completed by you. Not your roommate. Not your buddy.  Not anyone else. You.  It is a violation of scholastic integrity to copy code or do anything that represents somebody else's work as your own.   Don't do it.  Don't email code to your friend. Don't share it in any form. Don't put it on Dropbox or any other cloud/network service that makes your work available to others. 
We do encourage you to talk with each other about the course material, the assignments, good ways to approach an assignment, ideas how to debug your own work, and the like.  Just don't copy code or try to pass off somebody else's code as your own.
