Practice. Practice. Practice. Actual experience beats memorizing a book. Install a JDK. And write stuff.

I would advise you not to use NetBeans as a beginner. If on Windows, use Notepad2, Notepad++ or jEdit as a text editor; they are all much much better than Notepad for programming.

Show us your code, and let us comment about it. Find our very own Cattle Drive. Look for other websites with exercises on; there is one called (I think) javabat.com.

Don't use an IDE (NetBeans, Eclipse, etc) at this stage, unless your spelling is very bad.

On Linux with the Gnome desktop I usually use gedit, and on the KDE desktop, kate. I think Notepad2 works on Windows, and Notepad++ may require WINE: try this link-->FAQ-->Linux how-to.

I also have had good experience with nedit. I believe it requires a bit of configuration for turning syntax highlighting on, but after that it's a good editor.

practice the things by writing programs which you read theoretically

And always ask questions with yourself why it behaves like this and search the explanation for that behaviour

It will improve a lot
