Campbell's suggestion would be THE best way to study from scratch but I chose to go by the book (literally speaking). I used 'Professional Java programming' by Wrox Press and found it very informative and comparatively easy to start with.

No sparing the pain, I am afraid. The sooner you learn to find your way round the API the better.
And if you come onto JavaRanch and say, "it says . . . . in the API for Foo#fooFoo() and I don't understand it," the other members will be impressed at the effort you have put in and be more willing to help.
