Hi & Thx
Hi Java Forums people,
i would like to say thanks for allowing registration to your forum.

Just about to leave the British Army after 12 years of service and am going to be taking a Java Programmers course within the next few weeks but i would like to get information from any gurus on to the starting point and areas i need to get me up to speed before the course. If anybody is willing help in this please don't hesitate to get back to me as i want to start as soon as possible and im here all day. Once again thanks Java Forums,
I think the best free general Java resource is Java tutorial from Sun:
The Java™ Tutorials
If you have previous programming experience, you can start reading it and have a broad understanding on the topic. I think you will learn better from the course if you have read it.
And there are also very good Java books if you would like to read.
The thing is i am not sure which tutorial i should be covering as i am new to this in a completely new way altogether please give me more of your knowledge and advice as it would be much appreciated for you to pass your knowledge to me through helping in every angle possible, thx ZAX
I'll recommend Java head First book, see if u can find the soft copy of it. Learning java from that book would be fun..take my word for it.
Hi Zax by my opinion the best book for beginner is
Thinking in java 3rd edition or higer.
Ok thanks people for your advice but ive been reading through some of these areas and im still unsure with regards to the words variable, arguments, methods and say statements what do you recommend to understand what they mean and where and when there needed when trying to write your own programme.
