Learning Apex

Hello all, 

 

I am trying to learn Apex. I know that it is a Java like object oriented programming language. I was wondering which one of these books will benefit me more, a introduction to java book or the object oriented programming for dummies book. 

 

Thanks in advance.

I don't know about you, but I learn a lot more from actually coding than from reading a book. I recommend getting a free developer org and working through some of the apex introductory stuff, if you are intending to do more Apex programming.

The manual is a pretty good place to start

It goes through the concept and then there's a useful quick start experiment to introduce you to the code. 

 

The rest of it is then a very comprehensive reference guide
