    I found CodingBat to be a good tool to practice the basics. It doesn't TEACH them very well, but it sets up the environment and gives you problems and tests everything for you. It was perfect for my learning style, and who know, it might work for you.

    Otherwise there are thousands upon thousands of tutorials online. If you want to follow along with someone step by step as they program and listen to what they are thinking, try out a couple of YouTube videos. I would recommend watching the first tutorial of a couple of different people and choosing the one that you like most. Each person will have their own teaching style so trying a few will help you find the right one.

    If you want a quicker approach, you can find tons of written guides online just by searching Google. I think that is more of a 'learn at your pace' option, since you can read and skim and learn however quickly you want to.

    Good luck!

    Get a book. Period.

    The java tutorials are more of a reference because imo they lack in pedagogy. They are extremely helpful undoubtedly, but one cannot rely merely on them.

    A solid introductory book supported by online tutorials and other material is perfect.

    Such a strange question too. "Can anyone suggest any material to help me learn". Its the same as it has been for hundreds of years.

    Methinks that what the OP -really- wants is a book suggestion, but one can only guess with such a non-specific question.

    Sorry totally forgot about this post.

    I am looking for anything online or book based material. I have come across some videos but if anyone know books or tutorials online that will be great. Also what about IDE's which is best for beginners.

    thanks
