At my uni starting sept im tkaing computer science and the language they use there is Java. I have a book on Java and C++ (Sam's teach yourself xxx in 21 days) to do a proper job and be really serious about it i suggest investing in a book or two. Those ones mentioned are very good, and have served me no end. As for tutorials, Java online tutorials are a bit scatty from my experience, but a list of some can be found at this website
but I would advise this
one as a good resource. The "a cup of java" on suns
website is good in parts and useless in others, but you can judge your own preference.
C++ tutorials. I personally have moved away from my book and am following this
through to get a reasonably detailed overview before going through my book for the fine tuning, every makes more sense second time through. I dont feel the need to mention any other C++ tutorial websites as that one is by far the best I've ever come across.
Just incase you haven't got/didn't know, you also need compilers in which to write each language's code. The book for Java comes with a CD with their compiler software on, but even the "new" edition of that which I purchased was an outdated version. Save yourself time and hassle and download this
compiler package from netbeans containing the IDE and the Java 2 (the newest version of java aka Java 1.5) package.
As for the C++ compiler, I myself went with the free Dev-C++
compiler which should be all you need to start writing your C++ code.
Thats the kit you need for Java and C++, be sure to bring your brain, and you're away. Enjoy your programming experience!
