If you are talking about the Java API, I would say that it is useful. It tells you what class has which method that will do what you want to do. To learn it, pick a class, like String, find it in the API and read all the methods that it has.

It is extremely helpful, I use it all the time. The javadocs must be used in conjunction with books, training such as the Cattle Drive and as well contemplation and thinking on your own.

No one resource will do the job, you have to put several of them together. Work till you get stuck, then work awhile longer but do not sit there for days not getting anything done on something that won't add two and two.

As this thread is duplicated in another forum, I am closing this one.
