Hi, I'm currently reading through 'Head First Java, 2nd Ed' and I was curious if I am on the right track. I do need to learn at least the Java basics before I move onto using it for the web, right? I'm not really sure what I do after I finish this book, my main interest is to use Java for web development, any tips or advice would be appreciated. If anyone could recommend a good book to read after, please do, thanks.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

You're absolutely right about learning those basics first, and Head First is a great introductory book. What you do next depends on how comfortable you are with what you've covered. You might move on to Head First Servlets and JSPs (the web stuff), or you might decide to solidify those basics a bit more -- perhaps even by getting certified as a programmer (SCJP).

Thanks for the quick replay Marc, I'll look into that book once I have a better grasp of the basics.
