    Start from one source (website, youtube, books) and once your base is strong, start expanding your resources and learning more skills in Java

    If you are already an experienced programmer in another language, the best book I've seen is Cay Horstmann's "Core Java".  It's in two volumes, but most of what you'd need in your 6-12 months is in volume 1.  A good thing, because the books are a bit pricey. 

    For beginning programmers, starting with Java as a first language, Barry Burd's "Beginning Programming with Java For Dummies" gets good reviews. 

    Another "getting started" book, a bit older, is Bates & Sierra's "Head First Java, 2nd Ed."  The "2nd. Ed." part is important if you're buying used to save money.  You want something that covers Java version 5 or later, and the second edition just barely does that.

    The firemen have burned all the books.  You will have to hire a tutor.
