I would like to add my own experience to all the wise previous advices:
- * I find it better to read a 'solid' book than a virtual one. I can read it in a Public Library. And take my own notes. Try scraching some lines of code over a paper. And after erasing and writting a lot, try running it

You should try everything that you learn.Enjoy!
