I will be signing up for the ap computer science ab test this year (which is all java), unfortunately no overpopulated high school in 4 in my town offers any cs courses so I have no-one to go to.
I have been studying for many years now, unfortunately I'm an anti-oop c/asm programmer so I have always re-written my own common functions or used c/asm libraries; on the ap test I would surely fail if I didn't use the standard java classes or wrote my own class.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a book to read to prepare myself for this test. A book that is commonly used in preparation for this test would be great, or:
I will need to know all the standard classes like trees, linked lists, queues, etc. It would be optimal if this book didn't bother explaining any of the logic or technical aspects and instead just went over the standard classes and their common methods. Also I initially learned to program with c++ so it would be nice if it didn't go over oop concepts.
I would post this in a java forum (what an idea) but I don't know any (I'm sure a search engine couldn't help me with this) and the idea of registering isn't exhilerating.
If any of you have taken the test (or something similar that used java) suggestions etc. are greatly appreciated.
