    Default another one... "hi everyone"

    Hi everyone, I’m 23 and live in Switzerland.
    I work as a "support engineer" and I started a continuing education this year.
    Goal is to change from "support engineer" to "application development".
    JAVA, C, C++, C#... we will see.

    I started with java 1 month ago with a short video training and two books.
    Still need a lot of help. If I have a problem I take my books or search on the internet for a solution or ideas.
    I hope the community here can help me with the kind of problems a “simple book” or the internet can’t. And also “beginner problems” or “comprehension/understanding problems“…

    Have a nice day.

    Welcome to the forums. Hopefully we can help you out here.

    What books have you purchased? How do you like them?

    Hi sunde887

    First I bought "Java ist auch eine Insel" (in English: "Java is an island too") for self-study, but I had too much problems. The book is just theory with a lot of background information and only a few (simple?) examples. Without an appropriate technical background it was difficult to understand. The book is more a reference or manual for java.

    After this I bought a beginners video training, “Einstieg in Java” (“Introduction to Java”) and a beginners book, “Einstieg in Java 6” (“Introduction to Java 6”). Parallel I watched a part in the video training and after read the same part in the book. This helped me a lot to understand the basics.

    Now I work with “Java is an island too” as manual. If I have a problem or something is unclear I try to find a solution in my book and look for examples on the internet.

    The video training and the beginners book are handy/proper to learn the basics. Easy to understand.
    “Java is an island too” works perfect as a manual or reference with a lot of background information or to recap something. A really good book as manual/reference, not for beginners or for self-study.

    Java ist auch eine Insel / Java is an island too: Java ist auch eine Insel. Das umfassende Handbuch - Das Buch von Galileo Computing
    Video Training: Einstieg in Java. Das Praxis-Training - Das Video-Training von Galileo Computing
    Beginners book: Einstieg in Java 6. Sonderausgabe - Das Buch von Galileo Computing

    Have a nice day.
