Basic Java help? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
The only books i can refer you to are C# books which if you are learning this (java) for school wont help you much.

A lot of the syntax is very close and for the most part the language structure is the same, but trying to learn C# and java at the same time i'm sure is not a good idea.

However, if your trying to do some on the side learning i found

Visual C# 2010 step by step by John Sharp was a good initial read.

Currently im reading
CLR via C# third edition by Jeffrey Richter which really goes into the behind the scenes stuff, i have read a ton of intro books and watched a lot of tutorials etc. The reviews state themselves that a lot of information you wont find in other books is in this one, and they are correct.


Other than that if you just generally enjoy programming, read as much as you can, watch as many videos as you can. Everyone explains something a different way and touches on things that others fail to mention, so even though its introductory stuff, there is always new things.

Thanks a million dude. Really helpful. I'm not too interested in another language atm as I'd like to get to grips with java fully first but I'll definitely look into that book once I'm ready.
Wish me luck!

I know you just said you were only interested in Java, but I would be amiss not to at least mention my all-time favorite programming book.

C++ Primer Plus by Stephen Prata.


It's a GREAT resource for beginners. Especially for someone like you who clearly already has a grasp on the concepts. The syntax between C/C++ and Java are really similar too. Had to mention it.

Good luck .
