I won't recommend any book. Instead of books, this site is actually very good. It also has a lot of topics ,but you may be more concerned with J2SE part(core java).

Hope it helps :)

I see you are a school student. Go for Sumita Arora book that is used in ISC/ICSE schools. It is good for Core Java with many exercises and detailed explanation of various concepts.

Sorry but sumita arora is the worst book i have ever read. !!sorry!!. I am comp. science student, and sumita arora for c++ is also not good. For learning C I read 'Let Us C' by Yaswant Kanetkar.

IMHO, one book is not enough to learn and master Java, you better-read book dedicated to individual topic e.g. Effective Java - best practices and idiom Java Concurrency in Practice - multi-threading Java Generics and Collection - Collections Definite guide of Java Performance tuning - JVM internals and GC tuning etc. You can see the full list on my blog post 9 Java books every Programmer should read

Cheers

One site that I've found good to use for first time users is "http://www.learnjavaonline.org/" It give you a window to type your code so you don't have to install any compilers and no worries with messy with terminal.

Instead of reading books, You must prefer online coding practice websites, because coding is not something that you should read and finish. You have to practice it on regular basis to make your concepts clear.
