and is it worth it ?
better and easier just to watch free tutorials on youtube
I think the video training from Safari Books Online or similar training video services are faster. It depends how best you learn though. In the US java engineers often get $100-200K in the high tech metros. Entry level is lower obviously. "Worth it" is relative to the other opportunities you have and what jobs are available in your area.
for the youtuber
s i couldnt find something to go along with, each youtuber is using something different.
Maybe try different search terms. In google I came across lots of resources. Here are just a few links on c++
Of course, like @validseo said, it really depends on how you learn best.
I never bought one but I had access to plenty of them during college. It is a lot of talking for almost no coding. I believe DOERS are the ones who really learn, so Pick a tutorial from the internet and start coding. Start small and don't try to do anything too complex if you don't have the skills yet, or you might give up before mastering any programming language.
I have bought several. Their value depends on what you already know.
Yeah I did and I still have it but cool part is I never got chance to open it online tuts are easier and sensible than those 300-400 pages books
Wow, they're two very different languages. But if I was starting out with them, I'd just read blogs and start to do small projects as others have said. Writing code is the best way to learn the language. You don't need to buy any books at this stage -- maybe later if you actually want to progress to intermediate and advanced stages.
If you go to the actual java(and Im guessing c++ too), you'll be able to find a lot of information as well as several downloads.
A lot of times, a programming languages primary site will provide tons of content extremely similar to the way it is displayed in college textbooks. Best part is most of it's free.
And to answer the original question, yes I bought a java book and no it wasn't worth it.
I personally ended up learning predominantly through projects, articles, videos, and A LOT of trial and error.
Buy a book is always the best, IMH.
