What saved me was the book, Learn Java FX 8 by Kishori Sharan. It is totally marvelous!
A decision I made, which you may or may not, was to NOT use the SceneBuilder until I had a clue what was happening under the hood. (Here is where the Sharan book was really good for me). I still, a couple years later, do not use the SceneBuilder, but I suppose I might in the future.
