    Default [SOLVED] Any good Java tutorial?

    I'm taking a class on Java and I'm using a book called "Java Programming" 4th edition by Joyce Farrell but I don't find it easy to follow...

    Any suggestions on another book or online Java tutorial?

    Thanks! :)

    I can recommend Head First Java (Google it, I'm not allowed to post the link). You have fun while you learn. The Head First series have always had a good reputation and I've learned a lot from their books.

    Sun themselves provide a good online starting point for learning Java, both with tutorials and their API.

    Usually these go almost nowhere + the work can be used by other New To Java if the work is in the clear .... post a few occasional matters here but do not overdo it.

    Why video? You're lazy? If so, you shouldn't program... In general, books are better than videos and much more detailed (= better). Of course, they take more time to read through...

    I would suggest to buy a book like head first...then start reading API reference from sun which contains a lot of information of individual classes....try to do lots of hands on coding in simple editors...dont use advanced IDEs as it provides lots of good features but u wont get good practice on writing code syntax....

    There is no such thing as advanced topic given your work as stated, those are catered to every day by Puff Adder Banners that reap glorious praise. Everyone uses H.F. given your requirements.
