This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
The only way to really learn a programming language well is to use it a LOT. You can pick up the basics and principles from books and websites but there's no substitute for getting your hands dirty on real code (and most code you'll create for school assignments is NOT real code, as it's bound to focus on small usually academic parts of the whole). Reading code produced by others can also help you learn real code.
"ropoty ropoty", We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it. In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. Thanks! bear Forum Bartender P.S. Since this has nothing to do with JSP, I'm moving it to the Java in General(beginner) forum.
