    Big Java, a good book all the way I think. You can skip the non-pertinent chapters on basics (datatypes, etc) and go to the meat of the book, which when you look at it is a wonderful lesson in Data Structures, programming practice, and most of all java. The newest edition which I don't have but skimmed through has some really interesting stuff for you to make distinctions between what you need to know and what you want to know.
