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.
as you (or someone else recently asking the exact same question) were told previously you should 1) post in the correct forum and 2) not expect people to plagiarise books by providing you with electronic versions you didn't pay for.
There are some free books online which you can find if you look for them, but IMO they're mostly not worth the trouble reading. [ July 15, 2006: Message edited by: Jeroen T Wenting ]
In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our FAQ section here. Several apply here but in particular, please see CarefullyChooseOneForum Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question. -Ben
"Thinking in Java" is a great book if you already have some experience with a procedural language. Google for the download page.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
