I am not sure if this is the right part of the forum to post this in.
I started learning java online the other day and I am now looking for a book to buy so I can get the basics down. There are 2 books that have good reviews:
Head First Java, 2nd Edition (this was written for Java 5.0 but apparently many people are still using it)
Java, A Beginner's Guide, 5th Edition by: Herbert Schildt (A more traditional text book but seems up to date)
If you could recommend any others that would be great
