Learning Java? Great, this book will help you.
I uploaded this Java Programming PDF to share with IT Elective 1 (Object Oriented Programming with Java) classmates. 🙂
I searched for it in Google, and I’m lucky to find this free e-book of Head First Java – Second Edition. I can’t remember where I got it from though. It’s been days (EDIT: no, it’s been months now! or maybe years), and I got a poor memory. lol.
And by the way, I used A-PDF Split to split the e-book into separate chapters of the PDF for our convenience. The file I downloaded is only one PDF file which had 690 pages. It lags in slow computers. It’s also better off being separated by chapters for ease of reading, right? So, there. 😀
I hope the Java PDF download links on this blog entry (Head First Java – Download) help you guys, and if you do find them helpful, please LIKE my website on Facebook, the Like button is right below on the FB box, thank you! 🙂

Java is a programming language originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems (which is now a subsidiary of Oracle Corporation) and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform.
The syntax of Java is mostly derived from that of C and C++ programming languages, but with simpler object model and fewer low-level facilities.
