Chapter 1. Introduction to JavaScript > Using the Rest of This Book

1.9. Using the Rest of This Book

The rest of this book is in five parts. Part I, which immediately follows this chapter, documents the core JavaScript language. Chapter 2 through Chapter 6 begin this section with some bland but necessary reading -- these chapters cover the basic information you need to understand when learning a new programming language:

  • Chapter 2 explains the basic structure of the language.

  • Chapter 3 documents the data types supported by JavaScript.

  • Chapter 4 covers variables, variable scope, and related topics.

  • Chapter 5 explains expressions in JavaScript and documents each of the operators supported by JavaScript. Because JavaScript syntax is modeled on Java, which is, in turn, modeled on C and C++, experienced C, C++, or Java programmers can skim much of this chapter.

  • Chapter 6 describes the syntax and usage of each of the JavaScript statements. Again, experienced C, C++, and Java programmers can skim some, but not all, of this chapter.
