Default First Two Chapters...Confused

Greetings,

I just have a quick question for those who have read this book already and/or are experienced Java programmers. The first two chapters of the book cover a TON of information. I have a small bit of experience programming in Python, but just messing around kind of stuff. The information I have covered so far in this book is very dense and my question is, does it start to make sense once you start programming in Java? Or do you need to understand it fully before you can start programming in Java? Any help would be much appreciated!

I'm totally new to programming and decided to try this book out,I'll tell one thing,the first chapter may be confusing but its not relevant to undestand it all just then as the author touches on those topics in depth in later chapters of the book so just keep at it and do the TryItOuts and exercises and you'll get it,Don't worry. :)

Wink Also having difficulty with first two chapters

I had problems fully comprehending what was stated in the first two chapters and found it beneficial to study different sources covering the same topic; for example, the part where the author writes about bit masking, I had to further research the topic before completely understanding the subject in its entirety. The best way to learn something, I have found, is to sometimes read about the same topic from two different sources. ;)
