Ryan, Make sure that next time you get a For Dummies book ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For_Dummies ). Best option to start learning something without a teacher. ;)

Edit:
Just get Java for Dummies ..

I would recommend Head First Java instead. It's highly praised, and does not sound as degrading as "for dummies". I don't know what the publisher was thinking, but if somebody gave me such a book I'd hit him/her in the head with it.

It's a small book, then?

I would agree with the people who prefer "Head First" over "Dummies". Although Burd, who writes the Dummies books, does a very good job indeed of explaining things like control structures, "Head First" has the great advantage that it introduces something much more difficult to understand: object orientation. There is obvious object-orientation from the very beginning in "Head First," much more so than in the "Dummies" book I have seen.

I am using Head First Servlets and JSP now..... I suggested Dummies book because sometimes it helps a *too much* beginner and its not that useless for people facing a programming language first time in their life ;)

Well, not to deny! I too like Dummies Series. But no matter what, "HF" series has almost always been the "cup of tea", 'book of choice" of any level of programmers. People may say a different opinion if they have never glanced the HF series once!

I find the patience of the responders in this place almost as astounding as the sheer arrogance and truculence of some of the posters. A bit of humility and a lot more effort would go a long way.

All of those called to give should do it without reservation. It makes it a better world to live in.
Cheers and more cheers to those people!
