Alright, so I finished Head First Java, I am currently reading an SCJP book, I have built a recipe and budget tracking applications without a GUI, I am looking into learning the SWT framework or the GTK bindings to do GUI work. So my question is, where do I go next, I feel like books like effective java are still out of my scope but I don't really see a book that connects me there. At this point should I be reading books on more specific topics ie. generics, collections, concurrency...etc, or is there a book that I am missing.

Thanks
Dave

  • Try the exercises in books like Deitel and Deitel (get the "early objects" editions of the "How to" books).
  • Try googling for a site called javabat.
  • Get Effective Java
  • Get Java Puzzlers by Bloch and Gafter
  • Read a more advanced book, eg Core Java II by Horstmann and Cornell, but don't worry about the C++ articles.
  • You can find details of all those books, and many more here.
