Hi. I am looking for a Java book that I can go buy to prepare for my future compeitions. I need a book that has most of the stuff like most books don't have recursion. This is for the UIL competitions and there are questions that try to trick you because books don't teach you it.

Um what kind of things are you looking for in the book? The site in your signature has a decent section on recursion.

What's so hard about recursion anyway? Once you'll understand the concept, it's just about the logic...

Nothing really; but when first learning recursion it can be a bit confusing as to why it works. The tricky part is coming to grips with how it works.
