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?

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? +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to JAVA400-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to JAVA400-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to JAVA400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
