I've been trying to find a good online Java school, because after a few books and tutorials, most don't seem to help much..

I've heard to take the Sun Certification exam, but doesn't that require you already know Java, or will it teach you from scratch?

Any help finding a good school "online" would be greatly appreciated..

Learn to program java - smiley

Thats a very good book, he takes the angle as if he was talking to a classroom, very easy to read and understand.

Depending on your state, you may be able to find a good deal taking it from a community college online. I am going to take a java course from North Seattle Community College online over the summer - in-state tuition is $71 per credit. (The java course is 4 credits) For that I get hand-holding, step-by-step assignments and a discussion forum full of other students doing exactly the same assignments.
