  • Question

  • Which is the most useful book to learn java from scratch??
    I know C++ very well; but don't know anything about java except a simple "Hello World" program.

    There are a lot of books/e-books available, so wanted to know which is the best/most popular one???

  • I'll suggest you two books:

    1. The complete Reference

                           Content is covering almost all the topics showing a way to go. But very concise on some topics which require  more explanation.

    2. Thinking in Java

                           Concepts are clear and few topics are really good, like inner classes.

     

    So, start from CR and move on to TIJ for better understanding.
