    Default What Java educational book to buy?

    Hi there,
    I'm looking to buy an educational java book, for years i have wanted to learn the language in a deep form and i believe to start with i need to know the basics 100%.
    I'm taking a two year course at college at the moment and we do programming 4 hours a week, which in my opinion isn't enough. And i feel right now i am not learning and i do not know everything i need to know. The java sun tutorials don't quite make sense to me, so therefore i am looking to buy a book to read in spare time.
    Right now i can create the simplest of programs, but my format and the way i create the programs is not correct.
    Any books that you guys would recommend from personal experience?
    Thanks

    hi goffy, first head java is not question the best java books for you if you are a every fresh man about java.
    however, you know how to make simple java application, right now what you really need is a java manual talking about this language deeply. think in java should be your choice.
