Is the Thinking In Java book outdated?  RSS feed

I am somewhat familiar with the basics of Java, like OOP concepts and loops, stuff like that, but I have practised entirely on BlueJ.

I wanted to get used to text editor-command prompt barebones Java (without an IDE) so I downloaded Java SDK 8. I was planning to use
Thinking In Java to help further and strengthen my Java knowledge, but the book says SE5/6.

Does this make a whole lot of difference? Should I go ahead with this book anyway? Is there any other book you recommend?

Joson,
It's still a good book and all the examples will work with Java 8 SE.

After you finish the book, you'll want to read an upgraded book on the Java 7/8 features.
