You’ll learn everything from the fundamentals to advanced topics, including threads, network sockets, and distributed programming with RMI. This edition focuses on Java 5.0, and includes all the core Java fundamentals.

Head First Java combines puzzles, strong visuals, mysteries, and soul-searching interviews with famous Java objects to engage you in many different ways. It’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s effective.
