I'm pretty much in the same boat. I got interested in Java
after learning the basics of HTML, got Sam's J1.2/24 hours and
Borland JBuilder, and went through the book. It was a good book
but I couldn't get a grasp on OOP; the code seemed unnatural to
me since the only contact I'd had with programming was a little
QBasic when I was a kid.
Anyway, after putting Java on hold for a semester I've come
back to it and have been trying to find someone in the area
(Delaware) who knows it since they don't have a class at the
college yet. I just did get Beginning Java2 by Ivor Horton.
It's big and seems like it'll help me out. I also search alot of
various Java terms and forums. Most all the good tutorials and
free online books showup consistently.
Though I'm still struggling, it is slowly becoming clearer.
During the periods I get too frustrated, I give it a break and do
alot of reading.
