Java in a nutshell Question  RSS feed

I am joining a team whose main development language is Java in two weeks.
I've been doing a software development in embedded system using C/C++ (more of C programmer than C++ programmer) for last 10 years.
But, I've never done Java development before.
My new team know that I don't have Java experience but they are expecting me to get up to speed fast after I get on board.

Before I join a team, I want to get an early start and prepare myself for the transition by getting up to speed on Java as much as possible.
It seems like "Java in a nutshell" might be a good fit for my situation.
What would be the best way to use "Java in a nutshell" book to achieve what I need? (that is, learning and acquiring enough Java skill to get my feet wet..)

I did read the often mentioned "Head First Java" more than 10 years ago and one other Java books (Thinking in Java) right after Head First Java.
However, that was long time ago and I didn't do anything related to Java after that so I don't recall much ...

I knew I would regret that burrito. But this tiny ad has never caused regrets:
global solutions you can do in your home or backyard
