Better you start with Java Language book from Java Language.
you should read the API specification. There is a separate book also on Generics and Collections

Hi All,

Thanks for your reply

I tried the above mentioned recommendations but find it very difficult.I am really struggling in collection.Any site or book which can start from basics about collections.

Thank you

Hi Deepak,

I am afraid there are not more easier resources to learn java collections. The book I mentioned and Sun's website tutorial for collections is much easier.

You can try Kathy sierra Head first Java . That is the most user friendly book on Java ever. Find it here - Head First Java

If you don't have idea about how queues, lists and maps etc works, I would recommend that you read some basics of data structures. Then only you would be able to relate the collections with abstact data types.

Hi ,

I have never learned collections before and the books i studied before it was very difficult to understand.I tried head first but its all mixed up like arraylist in some chapter and other things in other chapter.

So was thinking whether a book or tutorial can guide me from beginning.

Regards

Deepak
