I just want to thank whoever runs this site. Dear god thank you. I am trying to learn Java again and I am getting confused again. I am not new to coding but can't seem to get a handle on this. Any tips to how I can think in Java? For example, when I code a web page I can actualy think in PHP. I think the OOP part is what is confusing to me.

If you want to think in Java, then try Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel.

if your objective is to cement your java knowledge (assuming you allready know a little) TIJ is excellent.

if you want a hands on learning way (with OO included) i'd recommend you give a try at agile techniques: test first, xp, tdd, refactoring, etc. Who am i to say such a thing, but as a no pro member i'm liking (and at the same time learning too) doing it.
