Must i pay 200dollars before i can access the course and get assistance or be in the "java ranch College" or benefit from the training?
I am in Benin Republic West Africa and i can't do online transactions from here. Please put me through on what i should do to start my studies in my current situation.
Thanks

One options is to start with the Sun tutorial on Java... its free.

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/


However, keep in mind, that in order to obtain a degree (or even certifications), you will encounter requirements that are not free.

You could try some books with exercises in. I know many people dislike the Deitel and Deitel style, but I like it and you can probably get a copy of the 6th edition for a reasonable price second-hand. I would advise against any older editions.

Sun's Java tutorial that Henry points to is very good if you want to study yourself, and there are also lots of books about Java.

I hope you don't think that Java or JavaRanch is a kind of closed society where you have to pay $200 to be a member... in fact, the large and open community is one of the things that make Java fun to work with. Ofcourse asking questions in the forum here costs nothing, and there are a lot of people all over the world visiting the forums here and volunteering there time to answer your questions.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
