Best Books To Learn Java For Beginners in 2024 – Hello everyone, I have many blog articles about the Java programming languages and utilities that can be integrated into those tools.

All of these tools and utilities make the process of developing applications with Java more convenient. But there is a truth that, no matter how useful the tool is, if we do not understand the nature of the programming language, it will be very difficult to understand it deeply.

That’s why in this next article I want to introduce to you 10 books that I have read or learned about during the process of learning and working with the Java programming language.

Best Books To Learn Java

I bet you that reading books is a very effective way for you to grasp the “essential” aspects of programming languages ​​in particular and of something in general.

Head First Java

  • Author: O Reilly
  • English language
head First Java

This was the first book I read when I started learning Java programming. Actually, a brother shared the ebook file with me in PDF format (because at that time I didn’t have money to buy paper books).

The book is not too thick (about 700 pages), but when I first read it, I felt a bit discouraged because I’m not very used to reading English books ^^

The book includes 18 chapters covering almost all basic aspects of the Java programming language.

A very good point about this book that I really like is that it uses a lot of very vivid illustrations. In addition, this book also has a system of questions, practice exercises, or “brain-destroying” puzzles to help us deeply understand the problem.

Effective Java

  • Author: Joshua Bloch
  • English language

This is a book that I find has many quite practical examples, as well as updating new Java technologies in a very systematic way.

Effective Java is considered a book suitable for many audiences, from beginners to experienced programmers, this book also has its own good and noteworthy points.

Although not too thick (only about 370 pages), the book’s content is not shortened, on the contrary, some content is explored quite deeply.

Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach

  • Author: Robert Sedgewick – Kevin Wayne
  • English language

Although I haven’t had the opportunity to read this book, based on my friend’s words, this is a quite suitable book for those who want to learn Java.

The book is introductory so the content is quite basic and not too academic like many other books.

In particular, at the end of each chapter, the book will have a summary so readers can grasp the summary content of that chapter.

Learn Java in 1 Day: Complete Beginner Guide

Actually, when I first learned Java, I found it quite difficult because the syntax was quite long, the structure was tight and different from the Python language I learned before.

That’s why I looked for a book that I could read to code right away but still help me understand the nature of the lines of code.

Yes, and I found this book, at first I thought “There is no way to master a language in one day” – the title of the book seems a bit misleading but in the end I still read it and I found the book quite good. .

If you are looking for a suitable and not too academic book for beginners, this is a very suitable book for you.

Core Java Volume I – Fundamentals

  • Author: Cay S. Horstmann
  • English language
Core Java Volume I – Fundamentals

This is also one of the books I read when learning Java programming. With the Fundamentals version, the book is divided into 14 chapters.

With 14 chapters, the book covers almost all core functions (Java’s core) such as variables, data types, objects, exceptions, etc.

The book is quite thick, so if you are new to Java, it may be a bit intimidating. But there is a very good point in the book that I like that instead of just us doing this and that, the author chooses to explain in great detail why we have to do that.

From there, it shapes the reader’s problem-solving mindset instead of how to solve that problem.

Core Java Volume II – Advanced Features

  • Author: Cay S. Horstmann
  • English language

If Core Java, Volume I – Fundamentals is about the basics of Java, Advanced Features is about more advanced issues.

If you are new to Java, you don’t need to read this book yet. With 12 chapters, the book covers new concepts in Java such as stream libraries, networking, database processing, security…

This book is suitable for those who have experience working with basic Java Core and want to learn more about Java.

Data Structures and Algorithms in Java

  • Author: Robert Lafore
  • English language

Structure and data can be said to be a basic programming subject that plays a fundamental role in forming programming thinking .

When I first learned this subject, I often used the C++ programming language to implement algorithms. But as you know, C++ is quite difficult and certainly does not support as many libraries as Java.

Therefore, if you are learning Java, you can consider reading this book to practice algorithms, programming thinking as well as learn how to implement algorithms through Java.

Mastering Java Machine Learning

  • Author: Dr. Uday Kamath , Krishna Choppella
  • English language

Many people think that when learning or working on Machine Learning , people often use Python or C++, but few people use Java.

This is also true because Java syntax is quite complex, and performance compared to C++ is also worse. But that doesn’t mean Java can’t be used to do Machine Learning problems.

With the book Mastering Java Machine Learning, it will help Java programmers approach machine learning problems in the simplest way without having to use another programming language.

Java Deep Learning Projects

  • Author: Md. Rezaul Karim
  • English language

Deep Learning is a branch of Machine Learning, developed based on machine learning algorithms combined with large data sets.

In recent years, Deep Learning has achieved many great achievements in many different fields. Typical examples include human recognition systems, handwriting, predictive analysis…

The book shares 10 real-life Deep Learning projects implemented through the Java language or APIs written in Java.

Therefore, if you are interested in implementing Deep Learning models in Java, this is a very good starting book.

High-Performance Java Persistence

  • Author: Vlad Mihalcea
  • English language
High-Performance Java Persistence

Performance is one of the points that makes Java lose points because the Java source code is not compiled directly into machine code but must be compiled through a virtual machine.

However, the book does not talk too much about how to optimize Java code, but actually talks more (mainly) about how we interact with the database, how to use ORM frameworks to Optimal.

It can be said that this is a pretty good book for you who are using Java to work with database management systems. Optimizing database operations in many cases brings great benefits and saves a lot of costs.

Yes, above are 10 books that I have learned or read when learning about Java. The books cover many different areas from basic to advanced.
