    I first learned about Java on "brown bag" lunch breaks with other developers. We all would all gather as a team and watch presentation media by Bruce Eckel while eating lunch. Bruce also has a book, "Thinking in Java", I found to be helpful. What set's Bruce's material apart is that he does not try to dazzle readers with his technical abilities. He presents concepts clearly and simply as possible. http://mindview.net/Books/TIJ4

    I'm not familiar with the course you describe so I cannot be any assistance evaluating. I don't think you need to know other languages before learning Java. Java is relatively simple. The real challenge is learning the various utility libraries and open source projects that make it useful. Still there are many resources and sample programs on the net. Start small and work your way up.
