One of the main components of modern programming languages is the ability to make decisions using the data provided to them. Java provides decision statements that can be used to make decisions and being able to make decisions is a fundamental part of the Java programming language. In this course, you'll learn about various types of Java decision statements. You'll examine how to use the if-then-else and switch statements. Then, you'll move on to learn about String comparisons, the comparison operator, the equals() method, and compareTo. You'll also learn about the strengths and weaknesses of each comparison operator and the best time to use each. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for Oracle's 1Z0-811: Java Certified Foundations Associate certification.
