Best book to learn java

Hello everybody,

I am absolute beginner to java, have no knowledge about it. Though I have cleared many basic concepts of C and C++ which everybody told me to. Now, I would like to learn java from the very beginning to a very advanced level.

Pleas tell me which book can I refer, or a series of book that I can look upon to learn java evvectively. I live in India, so if you know of some book by Indian authour or which is widely available in India, your answer would be much appriciated.

As I told you above, I have no previous knowledge about java, but still I would like to learn it from beginning to advanced. I would like to learn from the very beginning like choosing the compiler for java and writing your first java program to GUI (Graphical User Interfrace).



Sorry if it's pretty long and if I sound crazy but I would appritiate your help.



Thanks for your help in advanced.

Re: Best book to learn java

Just being curious here, what's your motivation for learning Java rather than any other programming language (I guess you've already found a good book about Java programming and are already an expert )

Me too, I am curious what is your motivation to study java? I can suggest that it is better to learn in Online tutorial, for my own opinion only

I think the book you might want is called effictive java. It is not written for the beginner but you said you know some C and C+. If you need a more basic refference I'm sure there are lots of free online documents available.

Re: Best book to learn java

Another good book which I recommend quite often is head first java. It covers a wide variety of topics in depth. It also gives you an introduction to some more complicated concepts. I suggest you read more than one book simultaneously, it will prove invaluable. Different books have different styles, some better for others, some worse.

I think that Deitel's book is a very good book to begin your studies in Java.

It's a very didactic book, but it would be great if you were familiar with objects oriented concepts.

I used a book by Ivor Horton (one of his beginning java books) and some test emulation software to get my JSP. You can search for him on Amazon. Highly recommended. If you are a staving student, you could always try to rent textbooks. Good luck.
