See the book review page - http://www.javaranch.com/bunkhouse/books.jsp and select beginning java in category list box and search. My pick is Head First Java for beginners

Use a notepad or a text editor to write code and the cmd prompt to compile and run the classes. You should stick with the book and try to decipher the sample code and exercises they should ask you to do.
