Hello and welcome to CodeRanch!
This year, I learned much about coding in Java with two books for preparing for Oracle Java Certification. These were Programmer I Study Guide by Edward Finegan and other book by Jeanne Boyarsky.
These are first parts of exam and there is also second part with books from same authors. I will start with Programmer II Study Guide by Jeanne Boyarsky later this year.
I find this way to learn / refresh coding knowledge very fast and effective.

Welcome to the Ranch

If you want to upgrade partciularly from Head First Java to a newer version, try Java8 in Action by Urma Fusco and Mycroft (Manning). Newer editions of the same book are called Modern Java in Action.
