    Depends how you're learning it.
    You don't need to know any other language.

    A prereq could be some basic math concepts.

    prerequisites are the willingness to work hard (and fair) and the ability to think logically while maintaining at least a modicum of creativity (just like all other languages). Other things may be helpful, but as long as you can do these you succeed in programming, period.

    Learn C before Java?!? Dear God NO!!!

    The first REAL language I learnt was Java and I was introduced to C and C++ at a later date.

    Java is an object-orientated and; thanks to garbage collection; its memory management is substancially easier than C or C++ (No chasing memory leaks, pointer or addresses).
    Whilst I consider C to be a seriously dated and antiquated language, I can't describe Java as a superior language to C++ or C# as they each have their place.

    For Java, all you really need is a suitable development platform (NetBeans for me) and a number of good tutorials.
