First off I love the site. I am new to Java (I come from a system administration background) and am looking for training. Is Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language (WJB-110A web-base) worth the money?
I am currently reading Head First Java. Should I stick with that? I would eventually like to take the SCJA exam.
Thanks for any help
Jason

For learning syntax, Head First Java is probably your best resort. If you can get past the first chapter, and have a basic understanding of loops and conditional statements (ifs), then Head First Java is a great resource.

Best of luck on your studies, and your quest for certification.

And if you're having trouble, our Java in General - Beginners forum is a great place to get help!
