    Default Calculator beginner tutorial(s)

    In my school course I need to present a calculator made in Java. The more complex, the better. However, I am a complete beginner. What tutorials for learning Java so you can make a pretty complex calculator would you recommend? I am not interested in learning things about Java that is not about calculators. That's why I'd like to see if there are some good tutorials that only, or at least mostly, are concerning how to learn making a complex calculator from the scratch.

    I have searched google but want to know if you have some great tutorials for this matter in mind.

    Sorry, you need to learn Java and then apply the knowledge. That's how this programming thing works. Imagine if your doctor studied only the left kidney and you came to him with a problem with your right one. You'd be out of luck.

    The Swing tutorials will help you learn GUI programming.

    I started here. Its a little dated now, but the first half or so it still very relevant and will help you learn a lot about Object Oriented Programming and how it works (besides, that eBook on the site is free, so nothing out of pocket to start learning). Then I suggest moving onto a newer book or something more recent.
