    Hey guys,

    Wanting to teach myself java, have been doing some 1on1 studies with a member from this community, but I want suggestions on how you learnt java. I'd prefer to learn away from rsps before I dive in headfirst, I'd also like to focus on object orientated programming but understand I need to learn procedural first.

    All book recommendations are highly appreciated, I'm currently thinking about purchasing headfirst's javaFx book.

    Thanks!


    Ps Don't take this name seriously, I cant change it and the account is almost 9 years old lol

    Don't buy a JavaFx book if you don't even know the basics. JavaFX is a platform for writing GUI applications in Java. If you want to write GUI applications I recommend learning Java itself first.

    You also don't really need to spend money to do all of that. There are a lot of sources which are just as good as premium books. A good free Java book is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. I also don't recommend you try to learn from rsps because most released servers have terrible code.

    What do you know about Public Void and int without this [] is only 1 integer, why?
