How did you learn Java?

I have an ďokayĒ understanding out topics up to basic array rules. Anything after that is making me nervous.

What do you guys recommend to learn java? I have a big textbook on it. Should I just crack it open and read page by page?

Thank you in advance. Iím trying to excel in my class and want to learn from those who have mastered java.

I would say the process of learning depends on every individual. Like what style suits someone. The asking of 'why' and 'how' makes it possible to understand a particular tech deeply. It may be through online courses, in-depth book reading, via class notes, through professor's lectures, through online forums, articles, etc. Just whatever works.

There is no shortcut to learning anything, and the same thing is for learning java. If you want to master the language then you have to set up it on your system and start the practice of it. Download and install JDK (Java Developement Kit),JRE(Java Runtime Environment) and any IDE with whom you are comfortable.

Well, I can't say that there is a universal way for everybody to learn Java. Some people prefer online courses and a lot of practice, some - offline studying, book-worming etc. My experience with Java started with the question how to learn java and I found reasons for (there were many "for", actually, started from career possibilities, exciting projects, salary, for sure, java place in the programming languages rate).
I can advise you of trying some online courses just to get acquainted. Then you may adjust your timeframe to your tasks. It's more convenient.

I see "How did you learn Java?" as a direct question.

I guess that you might be talking about JavaScript, but this also applies to Java.

I looked at examples that I found that did what I wanted to be able to do and I studied them.

I tried to not waste my time studying what I did not want to do with either Java or JavaScript.

Hey, I am a newbie and was personally behind Udemy, Codecademy, W3schools, and a couple of youtube videos. I would suggest you to explore more and get started.

Like any language, JavaScript has certain commands and rules for writing them. You can start learning this language with the following things:

Code structure (how a program is composed, where it starts, in what sequence commands are given, etc.).
Variables (what they are, what they are used for, how they are defined and used in scripts).
Data types, e.g., number, string, logical type, and type conversion.
Operators, such as how addition is done. Priority of operators (which actions are executed first, which are executed second, etc.). There are comparison operators, conditional operators, and logical operators.
To learn how to use loops (what they are, what they are for, how to set them). In simple terms, loops allow you to perform the same operation several times (until a condition occurs that completes the loop).
Functions.
Objects and their properties.
Prototypes, inheritance.
Classes and class inheritance.
Interface events (handling cursor movements, mouse clicks, keyboard key presses).
Programming interface elements: buttons, forms, etc.
Learning how to write asynchronous code in JavaScript.
Debugging programs in a browser written in JS.
Error handling.
Code quality: how to write a program correctly so that it was easy and simple to navigate both the author and another developer.

The question is posted under the java topic. The title says java. The post content says java. Where is this javascript thing coming from?

I would recommend you to learn from scratch and start to watch some tutorial videos on core java from scratch that will help you to understand it in a better way without worrying about the size of the book. I hope that helps thanks!!
