comment Should I go to a job interview even though I know I won't get it?
I think you should take a shot at it. most of the interviews focus on the approach you take to solve the problem rather than the end result. Even though in worst case you might not be able to convert the document there will be plenty of points given to you to see how you approach the situation. I think they will also give you a nudge in case you get stuck.

Did you try reading Head First Java? It gives a good precursor to OOPS & what its all about!

comment Feeling well out of my depth
I was about to type the same thing as John Bode, Picking up new skills quickly is something which defines a software developer! All challenges are quite intimidating first two years down the lane if you look back @ this issue it will be nothing compared to what you might be working on then! Take a breath, Have some coffee and nail it down! Cheers!
