I'm finishing up "Head First Java" and want to continue on with Java. I've found several small tutorials and excercises to work through, but where should I go next to continue learning?

What's the next logical step? Another book? Is there a more advanced one that would be a good to go to next?

EDIT---
I have no formal Comp Sci / Inf Sci training. Everything I know is self-taught.

I like the (free) Java Tutorial from Sun. You can download it as a compiled Windows help file, or as a web folder. It's free, it has lots of great information, and it can take you from beginner to at least upper-intermediate programmer. For more advanced topics, like J2EE, Sun also has a tutorial.

There is no ideal way how to learn Java, no logical step. Somebody prefer books, sb internet etc, sb web programing (jsp, servlets) and somebody midp programing. For Java in general I can recommend you two books from Bruce Eckel - Thinking in Java. You can download it in various formats or buy it as paper book.
