    Default Best book to learn Java

    I've just finished a course in OO Design in Java... It was a summer intensive course... and I feel like I need to read some more to compound the information.

    My friend sent me the PDF version of Absolute Java... which reads pretty well...
    Any other easy-to-read suggestions?

    Head First is also a better choice. If you can find a book just read couple of pages and see it's suite for you. ;)

    Hi Growler

    I would recommend Sams: Teach Yourself Java in 21 days. It's well written and serves as a good starting point.

    I agreed with you tim. Actually I've start to learn with Sams publications in many stuff in programming. Simultaneously I've refer the suns' official tutorial. It's a much better combination.
