So far, the only drawback of this book is that all the recent changes of Java is not updated yet. Yes, the core of the Java programming language is not changed much, but still it’s a must have book for everybody to learn Java programming.

Java: A Beginner’s Guide, Sixth Edition: As the name suggests, it gets you started programming in Java right away. It’s written by “Herbert Schildt” and covers all the basics, such as how to create, compile, and run a Java program. He then moves on to the keywords, syntax, and constructs that form the core of the Java language.

One of the main focus in this book is the exercises and end of chapter quiz to evaluate your learning. The book is fully updated for Java Platform, Standard Edition 8 (Java SE 8).

Thinking in Java (4th Edition): It is a great book that i have ever read. The book has brought me up to speed as fast as I could read it. Thinking in Java should be read cover to cover by every Java programmer, then kept close at hand for frequent reference.

The exercises are also fantastic and do an excellent job reinforcing the ideas explained throughout the chapters. This book is a good choice if you are preparing for Sun Certified Java Programmer exam.

Core Java Volume I–Fundamentals (10th Edition) (Core Series): the book contains detailed explanation of different features of Core Java. I like the way the concepts are presented and explained. The code examples are helpful. I would recommend this book to a beginning programmer.

This book has rewritten and reorganized to illuminate new Java SE 8 features, idioms, and best practices, it contains hundreds of example programs.
