    It wont be hard for you to learn Java. I learned it in a matter of days because it is so similar to C++.

    I suggest the book:

    The Complete Reference: Java 2 by Schildt. I think the latest one is the Fifth Edition. It is very good.

    And you can get it for only about $10 to $15 or so at Half Price Books!!!

    The Deitel& Deitel: Programming in Java book is an excellent, all-over reference to the language, in my opinion.

    For a complete beginner the Arnow and Weiss: Intro to Programming using Java is superb, I believe.
