    Default What's the best book,instructional vids on learning Java,if you're a total beginner?

    Can anyone please recommend what you consider is the best book/s and/or instructional videos to get, for learning Java programming (not to be confused with Javascript) at university, if you're a total beginner who's never done programming before, with little knowledge of how to use the proper syntax terminology required and little help is offered by a teacher.

    There's a Javascript for Dummies book, but unfortunately there isn't a similar book for Java. Please say why anything recommended, is better than other book/s or video/s.

    Hello KL70,

    The first place to start, which is free, is here - Trail: Getting Started (The Java™ Tutorials)

    As for a book, there are lots out there. I suggest:

    Head First Java

    or

    Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
