Who says I have?

However, the best advice I can give you is:
1. Enjoy it.
2. Don't expect everything to happen at once.
3. Practise, practise, practise.
This site has a lot of useful tips too.

Oh, and
4. Get a copy of Effective Java as soon as you think you're ready (or maybe even sooner). It's more of an intermediate book, but has a lot of great tips, even if you don't understand them all at the moment. You also don't have to read it from cover to cover, because it's arranged in topics.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

that is probably a mistake on my part. i got a free PDF version and just assumed it was the 4th edition
