Java The Complete Reference

Author: Herbert Schildt
The Complete Reference series are my personal favorite. This book is of around 1000+ pages. I won't recommend it to you, if you don't have the courage to hold this book and promise to read it till the end. 
This author of this book was a member of the original ASCII committee that gave standard for the C programming language in 1989.

Java Complete reference covers each and every aspect of the language you would ever need to know. The book starts with the explanation of the concepts of OOPS ( Object Oriented Programming Language) and covers both the basic and advance features of the Java Programming language. This book is a good follow up book if you have already read the other books of the complete reference series, namely The Complete reference C, and the Complete Reference C++.

Author: Kathy Sierra
The authors of Head First Java have made learning Java programming a fun task. They believe in the approach of stunning the reader to grab his attention. 
This is an efficient way to make our brain forceful grasp concepts. The books keep on bugging the reader with interesting puzzles along with effective related images. 

Although the book, seems to be a fun read, it covers all the advanced features of Java such as distributed programming with RMI, threads and Network sockets. 

Our Brains retain information efficiently when it is presented in the form of images. You might have already experienced this. You may forget the name of a person, but you often remember their face. isn't it? This book is based on strong visuals to help you keep the concepts of Java intact in your brain.
