Shipping This item ships for FREE via Media Mail (to the U.S. only). Details.

The CompuScholar Java Programming online course teaches students all Java skills required on the "AP Computer Science A" exam (see below). It also covers topics typical of most "Computer Science II" courses, and it can be taken standalone with no pre-requisites.

These courses require a Windows computer to complete the hands-on programming activities.

These courses share the same core Java lessons in combinations suitable for the specific course theme.

Students don't need any prior programming experience. We build all Java skills from the ground up. Students will use the free Oracle JDK, Eclipse development environment, and Android SDK. All Android development is done in a software emulator; no physical devices are required.

All Java Programming course material is delivered online to both students and teachers. There are no textbooks to wear out or CDs to scratch. Simply purchase online logins for your students and teachers to get started.

Studying for the AP* Computer Science A Exam

The full-year Java Programming online course may be used to prepare students for the AP Computer Science A exam! Please read Preparing for the AP Exam and the AP Exam Topic Cross-Reference for details. You may use our sample course syllabus as a template (College Board authorized syllabus #1249975v1).

Each chapter contains multiple lessons with:

  • An instructional video
  • Written lesson text
  • An automatically graded quiz

At the end of each chapter you will also find:

  • One or more hands-on programming activities
  • An automatically graded test

While all course content is delivered online, each course contains hands-on activities to be completed on the student's personal computer. The student will actually write, build, and demonstrate their own programs using modern Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). All 3rd party software is free to download, install, and use!
