    Default Good books and tutorials for Collections?

    I have been reading Java the Complete reference by Herbert Schildt, 9th edition from the past 1 month, and now when I started the topic Collections framework , it is not well written and not informative. Can someone suggest a good book or a website/tutorial for the topic?
    Thank you.

    Yeah Herbert Schildt is not loved on this forum :)

    Specifically for the collections frameworks, you might just want to refer to the Oracle tutorials and Google from there. Or if you have specific questions you can ask them here.

    I would recommend Java Generics and Collections (Paperback) by Maurice Naftalin, Philip Wadler ISBN 9780596527754 / October 2006.

    I have this book and continue to refer to it from time to time. Even though it is 8 years old, the material is still relevant. I had to re-read various parts on generics to ensure I fully understood it.

    Looks like a good book with mostly 4-5 star reviews; its actually a very good choice to cover both generics and collections in the same book. You can learn generics without learning about collections, but the other way around is a lot more difficult to do.
