    Default New to Java, where do I start?

    I've just recently started learning Java, and have only watched a few video's on YouTube. I don't know if that's the best place to start thought. Does anyone have any advice on how I should start leaning Java, or any links to some good website's I can go to? Thanks.

    You'll get a lot of different opinions on this here is mine.
    Here is a great beginner video tutorial series:
    Java Video Tutorials: Learn Java the easy way!

    That and I would get this book:
    Java Programming from problem analysis to program design by D.S. Malik 5th edition ISBN:1 111 53053 X

    the books not cheap last time I looked its about $75 used $95 new.

    hope this helps!

    I have been programming in Java for about a year now and once had the same question.

    While asking around the office for some great learning material one of my seniors gave me this book which I HIGHLY recommend, 'Head First Java', 2nd edition by Sierra and Bates.

    This book will teach you the basics in an understandable way and gives lots of very good tutorials with nice pictures that help you visualize how the language works.

    I would suggest starting here, good luck!
