This question has been asked many times before. I suggest you use the Search tool to find other threads (it's next to the 'New Topic' button on the forum page), and come back with a more specific question if you don't find what you need.

Oh, and welcome to JavaRanch.

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

Welcome to the Ranch

Most people here would recommend the Head First book (Head First Java 2/e, O’Reilly, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates). Have a look here, too.

Yes, I also recommend Head First Java, and also: Java, A Beginner Guide by Hebert Schildt.

Adam,

Adding your own question to an existing thread is generally frowned on here (it's called 'hijacking').

And since your question is pretty much identical to Viku's, I suggest you look at the replies he's already received - in particular, the link provided by Campbell.

Head First Java is definitely worth a read.
