    I read the book, did projects as I got better. Simple programs, first started to use different objects in other class files, moved up to a up n down game. Which that game the player had to pick under or over of a computer generated random number.. Then move up to tic tac toe. Try bookmarking various sites you find good material look back at them when you need help.

    In general it takes a while, at least for me, don't be discouraged right away. It comes and it's like wow, I should of known that.

    Good luck.

    Head First Java is a popular book for beginners and is not a bad book at all. Also be sure to check out the java tutorials, The Java™ Tutorials

    Also you might want to consider project euler for challeneges.
