I am new to java and i am learnig it very seriously. I have these books with me and i am following these.I want to know whether i am going in right direction or not?. 1. Deitel and Deitel.(Author) 2. Java 2 Complte Ref by Patrick Naughton 3. Thinking in JAVA.
first i downloaded html version of think in java, then i bought it. i'm very new to java and have no special background in programming what i'm sensing is that TIJ is a bit C and C++ connaisseurs oriented, but anyway i'm strictly learning from of, besides forums and sun tutorial. i can say i'm kind of enjoying it (still in ch iv)
Deitel and Deitel are great authors, i learnt to java program using their books. they provide a logical book structure with well thought out code samples. you are completly on track..... ps. google is your best friend.... use it Rian Fergusson
I have the Deitel version of Programming in C++ and Java. I found that the problems are very simular and that I could learn both languages at the same time by programming the examples in C++ and than in Java. I'm just having problems with polymorphism, pointers, and some oo principles. TIJ, from what friends tell me, is a very good book. I read the first few chapters, before I decided to delve into C++. The book assumes you have sufficient knowledge of C or C++. If you would like to learn from the book, it would be good to start learning C before diving full headed into TIJ.

"Head First Java" by Kathy and Bert is a must if you are a visual lerner. You will get to know Java�s Objectville which you will want to live forever. I have this book in my other hand as i am typing this message.
