    Book recommendations?

    Hi all,

    I was hoping someone could recommend a really good beginners book about Java
    as I wish to learn it. The book should be suitable for someone who has
    never coded before.

    Thanks,
    C

    Try Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel. There's a free electronic book download
    found all over the net.

    Finally, If you've never coded before I'd first back up and at least get
    accquainted with C++. Eckel also has a free book called Thinking in C.

    I have to disagree with you about C++ being a useful introduction to Java.
    Java is not just C+++. And I've observed that a lot of Java beginner
    questions are "How do I do this thing in Java that I did this way in C++?".
    I'd say, if you want to learn Java then do that. Don't start by learning
    some other language that will teach you bad habits.

    I agree with Paul.It´s not a good idea loose time with C++. If you´re novice,
    must to learn just Java now. So i recommend to you " Core Java 2 - fundamental".
