How complete is the Java Track

The Java Track seems a little short to learn the complete language.

Any idea how comlete the track is and what is the best way to learn more advanced Java.

oracle has java tutorial tracks . I wouldn't start here (they're text), but if no one comes up with better options... Udacity has an free intro course - i don't know who it compares to treehouse's equivalent. books, maybe. It's a big language.

It is the same, or more than you would learn from a semester at college. Do the mini projects they recommend and I can easily see someone having enough knowledge to build some more programs afterwards with more depth by reading the Oracle documentation, or getting help here.

After all of this, and maybe another language (maybe android?) to compliment Java I would feel confident applying for intro level jobs. Keep in mind different types of jobs/industries would require a basic knowledge of other skills.
