You want to learn oop and you are interested in java. Well i guess get a hold on the book Head First java to start on with java and java is a object oriented programming language.

The concepts can be easily found on google. Well i guess the book is pretty cheap looking at the contents that are presented in that.

Does your local public library or school library have computer books? You don't need the most up to date book to learn OOP - it's been in play for many years.

Its not about updated book. Its about simplest one. Well as far as it looks he hasn't been that exposed to OOP at all so Head first java is the best book that he can refer.

Copy available here for €14.23. But that appears to be the 1st edition. You can also find second-hand copies following our reviews page to Amazon; clock on the book cover icon.

Or go to your librarian and request a book.

No, this book is not available for free in electronic format. You can buy a PDF e-book of Head First Java, 2nd Editon on the Oreilly website, it costs $35.99. Or you can just buy it in a bookshop.

You can get the book Thinking in Java for free. Beware that it's out-of-date, as it covers an older version of Java; the current version of Java has lots of new features (such as generics etc.) that are not described in that book. But to start with, and to learn the basic principles of OO, it's OK. Just beware that you're not learning certain features of Java.

Good grief. I paid a lot less than that for my second-hand paper copy. But that's a good idea quoting Bruce Eckel.

I think a good place to start is here

Also, a great book is Just Java by Peter Van Der Linden. It also covers OOP.
