Hi,

I'd recommend "Head First Java", but check out the other Bunkhouse books here on Java Ranch!

Which book you should choose depends on your background and goals, ie
what do you wish to obtain by learning Java.

If you have no programming expirience (and no OO knowleadge) then I wouldn't
start with a certification book (or a certification for that matter!).
If your in the above situation, then I'd look for a book which also
introduces you to the world of objects ect. There's alot more to
programming than just knowing Java syntax.

I started learning Java with Core Java by Cay Horstman and Gary Cornell. This is a good book if you already know how to program in another language such as C++. I think there are other books that are better if you have never programmed a computer before, though.
