    Hello

    There is a free downloadable book on Java from

    http://www.bruceeckel.com/

    I haven't tried it myself so I don't know what it's like. If you are
    already familiar with programming then the "Idiot Guides" might not be good
    for you. The Idiot Guides are good for raw beginners (although if your 12
    maybe you ARE a raw beginner) but they do come with a CD ROM.

    If you already know something about programming then you might want to look
    at "Teach Yourself Java" by Joseph O'Neil published by Osborne, ISBN
    0-07-882570-9. This doesn't come with a CD ROM but you can download the
    free code online plus you would be better off downloading the latest JDK (or
    SDK?) from Sun anyway at:

    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/

    I'm new to Java myself but I'm doing it at Diploma level at my school next
    semester so that's why I bought the Teach Yourself Java Book and I'm
    downloading the SDK from the above link because that's what we are going to
    be using at school.

    Alternatively, the magazine PC Plus November 2000 edition (a British
    Magazine) has a free fully working version of Visual Cafe 3 Professional on
    the CD ROM (or DVD, depending on which version of the magazine you get).

    Finally, look at Devx at

    I hope this helps
