curmudgeon, I definitely prefer order when it comes to learning so I'll do that. Probably with a book on core java as I like the containment of a good authors selections.
pbrockway2, I did try the example, and it works a treat. I was put off by the new objects initially because whenever I look up a possible solution online the answer is always a new object and I thought I should be able to get it to work with the objects I know already
Obviously I was wrong.
I graduated several years ago and want to start working (as a 'mature' graduate) but my god there seems to be a lot of objects to work with and I'm finding it difficult to get back into things. The DVD tutorial I'm using was very good but only covered the basics.
With respect to web tutorials, I prefer a tool that's fairly complete such as a good book that covers all of the Core Java topics that the author thinks are important. When I follow web tutorials, I never know if what I'm learning is really relevant or not. There seems to be a constant flow of new objects and the ones I learn pass by rarely to be seen again. Does it ever come full circle?
