Which (Head Start) book to read first

Hello,

I'm currently studying to get a SCJP5 (or maybe SCJP6) certification.

I'd also like to learn more about OOA/OOD and Design Patterns, so I bought both "Head First" books on "Design Patterns" and "Object-Oriented Analysis & Design".

My question:
Which book should I read first?


SCJP 5; SCJD; SCWCD 5.

In a real project you first do the analysis and then the design, hence the order would be:

1. Head First Object-Oriented Analysis & Design (OOA)

2. Head First Design Patterns (OOD)


SCJP, SCJD, SCWCD, SCBCD
