I'm currently studying to get a SCJP5 (or maybe SCJP6) certification.
I'd also like to learn more about OOA/OOD and Design
, so I bought both "Head First" books on "Design Patterns" and "Object-Oriented Analysis & Design".
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
It is sorta covered in the
JavaRanch Style Guide
subject: Which (Head Start) book to read first
Which Book to Refer(design pattern) ?
Design Pattern Best Book
Design Patterns in Java
Studying for SCJD
Design Pattern Good Reference Suggestion
