hey evreyone,

I am going through the HFJ 2nd ed book nicely,at chapter 16 now & I have HF object-oriented analysis & design.

but I was wondering if there are any other books that are as good as this book in helping further my knowledge.

I was looking at Java Network Programming, is this book any good?

can you suggest any others?

That's far too broad a question. After beginners' books you'll have to decide on specific topics for further study, and select books for those you are interested in.

There are some general books you should have though, especially "Effective Java", that are not so much tutorials as repositories of sometimes arcane knowledge.

While thinking about what to study first, you should spend some time building a new house to keep your books, you will need it!
