    I used "On To Java" by Patrick Henry Winston, and I highly recommend it.

    incidentally; i bought JAVA BLACK BOOK by Stephen xxx, and it was a total
    ripoff!! he was using code used in the JDK Fundamentals from SUN. I took
    it back the following day. It is just a matter of principle, if i wanted
    the one from SUN i would have bought that one.

    Core Java 2 (from Sun) and Beginning Java 2 1.3 Edition (from Wrox)
    Additionally, check out the free Thinking in Java 2 online book at
    www.bruceeckel.com. Really a good book!

    I used Beginning Java which covers version 1.1 and it not good.
    First, the examples are bad. The author concedes it all over. He say like
    "This might not be a good example to demostrate this....", "Better examples
    could be thought of . . . "

    I donot know what the guy Ivor Horton is. It is written nowhere in the book.
    It does not have a class to it. No exercises (!) for you to work out. A
    couple of sundry workouts.

    He tries to avoid jargon. In the EXCEPTION handling chapter, for example.
    He tries to move around without using the words 'CHECKED' and 'UNCHECKED'
    exception. The problem is simple. How do you denote a thing without naming
    it. How do you refer to CHECKED exception without refering it as checked.

    So.... give some other a book a try. Have ISBN 0201596148 by your side which
    ever book you read. I would attest it as a scholarly book. Go through SUN's
    trails also.

    Ps: The uppercases used and '' are not meant to add any special meaning.

    Deitel. ISBN 0-13-012507-5. http://vig.prenhall.com/academic/pro...125075,00.html
