I am trying to study javascript in deeper detail due to some pretty embarrising mistakes i made on my site yesterday. I use some pretty nice sites and books and i was curious to know what sites or books do you guys know of that are pretty effective when it comes to teaching javascript.

I will make a list of the sites/books that i currently use, hopefully tomorrow.

Pretty cool


While I'm not an expert in JavaScript, what I did when I first started was looked over all of the tutorials on codeacademy and bought this book from Apress (i love their books): Pro JavaScript for Web Apps ISBN13: 978-1-4302-4461-5.

Then from there just started trying to answer questions here on DW to get more experience.
