Before programming a 3D video game, you should have some important knowledge in maths and in programmation. It's better to start programming very simple 2D games before trying to program a 3D game. Good luck.

In your other post you said you want to do 2D.  And I gave you a link to get some tutorials on 3D with jME in that post.

As a beginner in 3D? I'd recommend this:

Don't think your gonna write the next great MMO after reading it though, or even the next great FPS.  There is a LOT to learn before you get to that point.

And yes, 3D game programming is heavy math.  if you don't know Vector Algebra its probably not something you want to try.

Got a question about Java and game programming?  Just new to the Java Game Development Community?  Try my FAQ.  Its likely you'll learn something!

That is true if you want to do the next Doom 4 or Half-Life 3 or something. You can still do simpler 3D games that don't need the heavy math.
My math and vector algebra is not great (to say the least...), but I've still been able to develop 2 simple 3D games (Hyper Blazer and Cosmic Trip) and VirtuArcade.
If you want to do 3D, just dive into it and see how far you can get with your current algebra skills and learn more if required.
