I downloaded jdk 7 but I am unsure how to open it. Any advice?
You don't "open" the JDK. JDK (Java Development Kit) is just a collection of programs and library code that allow you to compile Java applications. What you need now is an editor or and IDE. Go download Eclipse and go google search for "java hello world in eclipse". This should help you get started.

Make tetris. Or, if that sounds like too much right now, "Guess my number".
I made my first Hello World! It got confusing at one part because at the point where Eclipse is trying to make you put in System.out.println("Hello world!") it didn't tell me to put the ending command " ; " or even where to put it, but I figured it out thanks to Youtube. I wish this program knew i was a extreme newbie at this stuff. So I was able to successfully create my first application.. now what? What's the next step in this learning process?
