Hi folks. I was just looking for a small piece of advice.  I'm looking to get a book, as dotting around internet websites isn't the best idea.  I was just wondering if buying a book on Java (the language I want to learn) would be the best step to take first and then a book on programming as a whole would be best?  Or the other way around?  Cheers!

What about a book on programming that uses Java as reference language? Honestly I can't name none of them, but looking into academic publications may work for you...

Killing 2 birds with one stone would make sense I'll have a look as I think that's a good idea. I'll post here if I fond anything encase anyone is looking for something similar. Thanks.

I saw this online : The Complete Reference by Herbert Schildt. It might help if you haven't found one yet.  It is the best and the most comprehensive book regarding Java.
