Absolutely the best way to hit the ground running for beginners in jQuery. As a matter of fact, one should acquire ALL of Mark's publications so he can continue writing new ones! I've written manuals and training aids for many years and applaud his approach - I've actually used much of it in years past but he's upped the bar using evolving online tech extremely well.Get all three books - you'll not regret it. And be sure to sign up for the online exercises - they're invaluable!
I have bought all of Mark Myers "A Smarter Way..." books and they are all amazing! I have used many tutorial, books, websites, on-line courses and while I have learned something from each of them NONE are as quick and painless as Myers books. The exercises are smart, breaking down each portion of the code and testing your understanding but unlike some sites, doesn't leave you hanging if you get it wrong or spending lots of time on community sites looking for answers. He also does it in as few words as possible, just the perfect balance of simplicity and efficiency. I also really like the jfiddle exercises. I can see the code work without having to install applications onto my computer. Really goes to show what a difference a good teacher makes. I hope there is another book coming out soon - I'll buy it!
What I like about this book is that it works, has exercises, and is more up to date than others. Plus it is easier. I still find jQuery confusing because of the syntax (sometimes in quotes, sometimes not, sometimes use a space and sometimes a comma, etc.) but this seems to be the best of the books that I read.
WOW!I can't believe how much time Mr Myers put into perfecting this step by step teaching method. First and foremost achievement - all the exercises and examples actually work. I spent 35 years in IT starting with Autocoder (does anyone remember that language) and finally retired as the world’s oldest Java designer/programmer :).That odyssey required learning a new paradigm every few year exposing me to dozens of classes, courses and self-learning activities as both a student and a teacher. This is one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever encountered.This is the best I’ve ever encountered. Mr Myers, thank you!
