    Everyone learns differently. Some like a book, some prefer videos, some are fine with the Oracle tutorials or other random tutorials found on the Internet. Some need a combination. I can tell you that I found a free book, studied it from cover to cover, typing every example and working every exercise and then modifying them to play "what if?" until I understood the material as completely as I could before moving on to the next page and chapter, but that may not work for you. (Even though I think it's a recipe for guaranteed success.)

    So, rather than gathering opinions that may not be useful to you, search for material based on how you want to learn the language and how you do learn, find training resources that appeal to you (for whatever reason) and get to work. Not every resource you decide on will be the right one, so if you get bored with it or find you're not achieving the desired results, move on.

    Ultimately, I believe you need some structure to your learning which not all tutorial resources provide. There are basic programming topics you should learn first and learn them very well. Those basic topics are usually covered in the first 4 to 6 chapters of most books. Intermediate but still important topics begin after that and progress to OOP and basic graphics and graphical interface topics. If you choose random sources from the Internet or jump around a bit, your study should roughly follow that same pattern.

    Be patient, learn the basics before moving to the intermediate and advanced topics, and practice, practice, practice. You can't write too many programs.

    Good luck! Now get to work.

    In my case there were 3 steps:
    - learn from basic tutorials
    - read clean code, some books about programming trends in java
    - study questions for java certificate - that set od questions had a lot of use-case that I had ommited during learning
