Hi hao zhongzhi welcome to Javaranch ,
Apart from a few good books like the Head First Java, you'll need a lot of practice.Its theonly way to master not only Java but anything new.
Practice well and you will learn well.

Hi,
Well Come to the world of Java and of course to JavaRanch.

Start with a book which gives the basics of Object Oriented Concepts.
Most of the people start learning Java without these basic concepts
which gives Java the best features of them all maintainability and flexibility. Go through some basic books on Java.
Then I would advice you to completely go through Head First Java, Second Edition by Kathy and Bert.

I think this might help.

Have Fun.

With Regards,

Sudipto Shekhar.

Could not agree more. Hands on experience and learning of the fundamentals should go hand in hand. This will keep you motivated as well.

Hands on experience and learning of the fundamentals should go hand in hand.

I meant the same thing.Although learning and implementation go hand in hand, some concepts which practice(sometimes with curiosity) brings up are not reflected by books.

I respect your view.But the fact remains unaltered that no book can teach how to swim.
