Branching ratios of nonleptonic exclusive two-body decays of B mesons without final-state charm particles are studied in detail. The technique used for evaluating the nonleptonic decay amplitudes is elucidated. The dominant charmless decay channels are BuK, 0, Bd0K0, K*, -, K*-, -, which should be interesting for experimental observation. The implications of the quark-diagram scheme are also discussed.
