Hi,

I feel like I need to crank up my Java programming skill. Where I am now is that I know more or less Java syntax but since I'm only doing it, at the moment, as my hobby, I'm not really doing it everyday. Therefore I feel that my skill is still a bit patchy and unorganized! However I would like, eventually, to be a full Java programmer one day (with the slightest hope that I won't be too old for that!!). I would also like to get the Oracle certificate as Java Programmer. That is my ultimate goal. Now, any suggestions where I can find good tutorial points? Free and video tutorials preferably. I heard that Lynda.com is good but I'm on a tight budget now. Thanks for any inputs!

Kind regards,

Yup. The horse's mouth.

Free and video tutorials preferably.

That might be a bit more difficult; although I hear that Coursera is supposed to be quite good. You may have to do a bit of hunting for the right course for you, and also wait for the next one to start though.

Thank you for the suggestions. Much appreciated!
