Moving On

I'm a computer science major in a first year class where we learn Java. I've gotten all the syntax and standard class methods down like String, Scanner and such. I've gotten to this point in learning other programming languages outside of a class setting as well, but I always get stuck at that point because I don't really know where to move on from. I'd like to be a very good programmer and have a thorough understanding of all the basic and advanced concepts involved, but I don't really know where to go. Could someone help me by just giving me some advice as to where to move on from here or maybe just some subject matter to look into that would move me along or something?

    Did you already learn about Collections, I/O, AWT/Swing, Reflection, Multi-Threading, RMI, Distributed Computing, ...? The sequence given in my question is a nice progression from basic to advanced.

    Thanks, we haven't learned any of that, except for maybe Scanner class I/O, but I'm sure there's a lot more I could learn. I saw that there were a lot of articles about the things like the Collections class on here, I'll probably start there.

    The Collections class itself isn't that interesting. The collections heirarchy is, and is more useful. Classes like Vector, ArrayList, HashTable, HashMap; those are very handy in data management.
