What's after learning the syntax?

Programming 2

Niris (1443675) writes "I'm currently taking a course called Advanced Java Programming, which is using the text book "Absolute Java 4th edition" by Walter Savitch. As I work at night as a security guard in the middle of nowhere, I've had enough time to read through the entire course part of the book, finish all eleven chapter quizzes, and do all of the assignments within a month, so all that's left is a group assignment that won't be ready until late April. I'm trying to figure out what else to read that's Java related aside from the "This is how to create a tree. This is recursion. This is how to implement an interface and make an anonymous object" and wanted to see what Slashdotters have to suggest. So far I'm looking at reading "Beginning Algorithms" by Simon Harris and James Ross."

Algorithms [ in ${LANGUAGE} ] (1)

Robert Bowles (2733) | more than 3 years ago | (#31216354)

Sedgewick is the definitive source for elementary algorithms (though IMO Knuth's TAoCP really should be required reading).

If you really must do Java, try Algorithms in Java [] .

Kind of oxymoron there? (1)

dragisha (788) | more than 3 years ago | (#31216820)

Advanced, Java.... :)

Except that, Sedgewick is good idea. Although I think language selection is to be performed AFTER you learn basics - these being concentrated in another book title, one from Wirth - Algorithms & Data Structures = Programs.
