I think it's wrong to start out having to learn OOP before you know the fundamentals.



I totally agree. I think this is a particular problem in the Java world. For example, there is a book called "Objects with Java" which teaches right from the very first page about classes. Get this, that's before it has even covered: printing to the screen, conditional statements, hell even before it teaches how to add two numbers up!
