    Default Guidelines

    Hello

    I have just started studying at university and java is part of the first term and a java project(group project, also has 2 parts group switch after part 1) which counts as half the term points.

    I start the classes next tuesday.

    I have been studying and learning the fundementals of java in my own time before hand, but I always get to a point where I need to read the information again or I get stuck.

    I havent had anyone show me anything , so tuesday will be the first.

    Any tips or guidance on how I could learn easier or ways to go about learning java.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also on the project work. Any advice from people who have programmed in groups would be appreciated.

    For example breakdown of project into tasks, time management, documenting our understanding of the requirements, documenting our work progress etc.

    Thanks

    Practice!Practice!Practice!

    Nothing more than that. What materials are you using to study about Java? If you can refer the Sun Java Tutorial. It clearly explain all what you want. And the major thing you've to think about when you are coding is, not why it happen, think how it happen...

    I am learning from 2 books. Daniel Liang - Introduction to java comprehensive version 7/E , Lewis & Loftus - Java Software solutions.

    I also watched the eclipse for total beginners tutorials by mark dexter.

    Excellent, just keep going.

    Actually selecting a book, no one cannot advice exactly which book should refer. It should be selected by your self. When we look head to a book shop, we can see that some books contain more theories than practical stuff, while some are in other way. Because different people have different choices. So just look at few pages before select a book and check that the way it organized is suitable to you. :)
