While I was on vacation I worked about two-thirds of the way through Sams Teach 
Yourself Java 1.2 in 24 Hours. The book was designed for non-programmers 
(according to the author) so while I found it useful I felt it was a little too 
basic, i.e., it didn't explain enough what was going on or why something was 
being used.

I've gone through the tutorial in Visual Age for Java but I had very little 
idea of what I had done when I finished. The MindQ CD that comes with VAJava 
seemed very good from what I have seen of it.

The IBM Java site (http://www.ibm.com/java/) seems very good but I haven't dug 
deeply into it yet. Plus they have on-line courses. Has anyone tried them and, 
if so, what did you think of them?

Other sites I've come across:
www.javaworld.com
www.gamelan.com
www.developer.com

        Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to respond to my questions.  It  
 
appears there are 20-30 list members who are willing to post to the list.   
Most seem to be only beginning with Java.  I have an idea for a   
discussion that may be useful to everyone and that everyone can possibly   
contribute. What approaches are being used to learn Java?
