I presume you mean Horstmann and Cornell? I have a copy at my elbow as I write. That is Cay Horstmann, Gary Cornell, Core Java 2, [Volume I-fundamentals and Volume II-advanced features] Sun Microsystems Press [Prentice-Hall] Santa Clara, 2005, [I think] US$49.99 per volume, but I managed to get them for less on the web. In UK try the Computer Manuals website or (same company).
I would agree it is a good book (or pair of books), which are designed for people who have programmed a lot already, and are therefore quite advanced and totally unsuitable for beginners. Particularly they take it for granted that their readers understand the object-orientation paradigm. No CD with the book, but the code they mention can all be downloaded from their website. Definitely updated for J5.0.
There are others; at College we were recommended Liang, D (2004) Introduction to Java Programming, Comprehensive (International Edition) 5th Edition, Prentice Hall, but I have never used it.
I edited this post to correct a few spelling errors. CR [ November 26, 2005: Message edited by: Campbell Ritchie ]
