I would recommend "An Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming" 6th Edition By: Walter Savitch.

I don't have ton of knowledge about what Java books out there, as I am more of a C++ programmer, but for a Java coarse I took, we used Cay Horstmanns's Java for Everyone second ed. It explains every in a concise straight to the point manner. The programming projects have good variety and cover some really interesting topics. This book and any written by Horstmann would be great.

I find the SAMS Teach yourself Java in 24 hours ok.
I did Java in college so I'm just trying to get familiar with it again but it's not bad!

Why dont you guys learn java from the official site of oracle.
It is providing very nice Java Tutorials in very simple and easy language.


better than any book or any other study material.

I would disagree.. it's a good supplement, but end to end structured language learning seems better from a book to guide you through it all.

I always direct beginners to the tutoracles to start out. It's actually a better introduction than most books, IMO, in that it covers the crucial material in a very efficient manner with a lot of good examples in code. A good book can add a lot, but once you've worked through Sun's material you'll have enough background to select a book which covers what you need, and you're less likely to land with the "Head First Java In 24 Hours For Complete Idiots" and more likely to land with something serious.

Head First java is the best book for beginners in my humble opinion , it is very simple and easy to understand

and check it here

I have to agree with this wholeheartedly -- not only is the book informative, but it works very hard to make learning Java entertaining, fun, and something that your mind will absorb. Also, it would be good to watch the Programming Methodology lectures by Mehram Sahami @ Stanford ( http://www.youtube.c...4A56BC7F4A1F852 ). While this isn't technically a Java course, Java is taught through the lecture series, along with good methodology for programming in any language (hence the course name). Also, there are some other free Java lectures by major universities -- try looking into MIT's Open Courseware ( http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm )

If you have the time and patience to learn something from scratch and in the right way, I'd recommend Deitel Java How to Program. I've personally used Deitel books and I have learnt a lot. Cay Horstmann's books are excellent too. Sun ( now Oracle) tutorials are good but are not paving any path for your learning. You can use them at specific instances and/or for specific needs. After all, what would be the meaning having so many books out there, if anyone could learn everything from the documentation of a product?
