Hi everyone ! I am new to the forums (thanks god i found this place). So yeah my dilemma is how to start learning java.I ain't sure what is the best java book to start learning some say head first java some beginning java .... well i personally like Head First Java it seems pretty cool and simple but also outdated it explains java 5 and the recent version is java 7 :/. Is it a problem or should the code just work fine? Also i actually wanna learn java to start with android development that's mine only wish.

Hello and welcome to the Ranch!

The same question has been asked many (and I really mean many) times here, so doing a little search will probably provide a lot of information. In the meantime you can start reading our Java Beginners FAQ, it's a good resource to start with. Of course, for any doubt you might have during the learning process, this community is the best place to seek help!

I agree. Here's the link:
