I will be taking a class on Java when I get to college in a few months. I would really love to be familiar with it before I enter college, and I would really appreciate it if people could give me the fundamentals of it such as which vocabularies are important and will be used often and their definition (in comprehensible words of course).
I tried checking some tutorials on the web, and I got lose even more. LOL When I checked for the definition of class, it says
A class--the basic building block of an object-oriented language such as Java--is a template that describes the data and behavior associated with instances of that class. When you instantiate a class you create an object that looks and feels like other instances of the same class. The data associated with a class or object is stored in variables; the behavior associated with a class or object is implemented with methods. Methods are similar to the functions or procedures in procedural languages such as C.
And with me having no experience on programming before, I am seriously lost and worried when I enter my Java class in college.
Again, I would appreciate any help.
