This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I read the whole Head First java book and now I don't know which other books should I read to learn more about java. Books should not be too hard because I'm a beginner and I would also like to read some book with a lot of excercises to do. Please tell me what should I do .Thanks
Welcome to Java world. Next step depends upon you. If you want a java certification - a certification book by same authors is there in market.
If you like - you can try out various java tutorials available on net.
If you are looking for more - may be you can try your hands on a java based popular framework like Spring.

Thanks!. Can you tell me the title of the certification book and some good java tutorials. I also want to build some simple java games. For example Snake game. Do you maybe know for some good tutorials for how to make Snake or some other game?
I wouldn't use tutorials. Try to code yourself.
You would learn more and those tutorials are mostly too narrow.
You said you want to program Snake. I would suggest you try some basic swing tutorials and go with it.
Even if it doesn't work you would've learned something. With a tutorial its mostly: Oh it works... No Idea why but good!
