    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Good books to study Java and practice programming problems are questions often asked. I recommend you Google for books and ask us if we have any experience or opinions on those you find interesting. As for practice problems, start with a good book that has lots of practice problems, do them all, come here when you need help. If you need more problems after that, ask that question again.

    The speed of your learning is directly related to the effort you put into studying.

    Good luck!

    Cross posting is posting the same thread in multiple locations, either on the same forum or in other forums. Duplicate threads in this forum are typically merged if both have responses or the one without responses is deleted or closed. Notifying others that the same thread has been posted in multiple forums with a link to the other post is a courtesy so that we don't provide conflicting advice or waste our time answering at all when the other forum has either already answered the question or has made significant progress towards a solution.

    I have never seen a book of practice programming problems, but I'll admit I haven't looked for one. Besides, I don't know that you'd want just a book of problems. I recommend you look for a book that has instruction, examples leading up to the problems, and solutions. Find a good beginners book with lots of examples and exercises at the end of each chapter. Google "best beginning java book" and read the summaries and user reviews, pick one that meets your needs.

    There are lists of programming problem on the web. One of the more well known is Project Euler.

    You're right, practicing is the best way to reinforce and cement what you've learned. You can (and should) modify most problems you've done already to cover new material or the same material in different ways to deepen and expand your understanding.
