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.
Ok so I have done MOST of java from Head First Java 2nd edition and the sun tutorial from the sun site. Here are some problems that I am facing
I am really getting confused with the IO-serialization, Threads and Network part. I understood the Threads in syntax wise but cant understand with respect to application part. So can anyone just suggest some good books which deal with specifically this part OR anywhere i can get help in making projects in java such as chat applet etc, where it is explained how to do it.
Don't ask so many questions all at once; it frightens people.
IO and serialization are easy. You ought by now to have found these parts of the Java Tutorial; this bit has IO and serialization in. You will find threads and concurrency here, and you ought to be able to get your hands on books which help too. And this bit of the Java Tutorial will answer your 4th question.

For books, you will have to go through your library and see which you like. They all have rather different styles, and what suits "A" won't suit "B."
I happen to like Deitel, but there are many people who detest the Deitel style. Deitel HM, Deitel P, Java, How to Program, 6/e, Upper Saddle River NJ: Deitel Inc (Prentice-Hall) (2005), has examples in with all those features.
Horstmann C, Cornell G: Core Java 2 7/e (vol II: Advanced Features), Upper Saddle River: Sun Microsystems Press (Prentice-Hall) (2004), has a nice chapter about concurrency; IO and serialization are in the same book, vol I: Fundamentals.
If you use two books, you will learn more by looking at where their emphasis is different.
