Hello, I am new to learning java and I was wondering which book you guys found more useful.
Head First Java
or
Absolute Java 3rd Ed.

Both have been recommended to me.
Thanks

I just got through HeadFirst Java and found it very good. I am very new to programming and Java to give you some context but I think after going through the whole book, I'm off to a good start.
