What book(s) do you recommend for beginning Java programmers with a Perl background?

Thus far I have found two recommended books: Head First Java and Thinking in Java.

Is it recommended to know Java syntax prior to studying JSP or JavaScript?

I plan on enrolling in Suns web training but want to know more background info on the different tracks offered. SE, EE and Web XML are the tracks.
Where do I begin?

thank you
derek

I went with HeadFirst Java over Thinking In Java. I got a little better reviews for its creativity.
