If you all already know about this and have covered it, my aplogies. Otherwise, this is a really cool java robot building site and download that helps you learn about classes.

I'll second that - Robocde is an *excellent* tool for learning to program to an API. I'm currently using it as a form of correspondence training with a couple of friends. The "motivation" is built-in -- kill the know-it-all Java author -- which of course can be extended to any friendly rivalry. But mostly it's fun! You see the results of your work (initially, a too-sudden death), and if you've got any measure of pride, you're hooked.
Great recommendation, James.
