    Default How to Correctly learn java? Books? Tutorial?

    Dear All,

    I am new in Java. Maybe any of you has the correct way to learn it. If it is from book, then what book did you use? If it is from internet tutorial, what kind of tutorial did you use? Help me please :)

    Kindest Regards,




    Elektronika;)

    Hi,

    there's no correct way. You have to find out what suits you best. Here is the Get started List:

    Sun's basic Java tutorial

    Sun's New To Java Center

    Includes an overview of what Java is, instructions for setting up Java, an intro to programming (that includes links to the above tutorial or to parts of it), quizzes, a list of resources, and info on certification and courses.

    jGuru
    A general Java resource site. Includes FAQs, forums, courses, more.

    JavaRanch
    To quote the tagline on their homepage: "a friendly place for Java greenhorns." FAQs, forums (moderated, I believe), sample code, all kinds of goodies for newbies. From what I've heard, they live up to the "friendly" claim.

    Yawmarks List

    The Java Developers Almanac

    Java Examples from The Java Developers Almanac 1.4

    Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java(Available online.)

    Joshua Bloch's Effective Java

    Bert Bates and Kathy Sierra's Head First Java

    James Gosling's The Java Programming Language
    Gosling is the creator of Java. It doesn't get much more authoritative than this.

    Joshua Bloch and Neal Gafter Java Puzzlers.

    And how about books? May you also recommend me some books because there are so many books out there. And what version of Java is now? Java 5? So that I won't end up picking the wrong book :)

    Java 6 is the current version, but for getting the basics that's not too important, just make sure you don't end up with a 1.4 book. Head first Java is very good, see the link in my first reply.

    Hi everyone,

    my very first post here :)
    I hope i can provide some help and advice as expirienced java developer.

    Learning is most effective if you can find any kind of project, student, professional etc

    For young developers i recommend doing short project but through all phases and complete life cycle.

    You will need a lot of help in begging don't hesitate to ask for it.

    Be sure that you always finish with some functionality that really solves some problem of your client,
    and be very patient

    best luck!
