Hi guys! looks like I'm not really feeling too good with this book any more. It's looking all tangled with this "Generic of a topic-- hash Code whatever..-" please can someone suggest me another one! At least to compare and comprehend. Thanks in advance!

Maybe you should tell us which one you're using now, then?

Which book you are talking about? What is the exact thing that you are facing difficulties while understanding?

For a dedicated and in depth approach, try Java Generics and Collections by Naftalin & Wadler.

For a shorter but very descent treatment, try Core Java Volume I by Horstmann & Cornell.

I hope this helps.
