I did Java programming before. But there were still a lot of new things learned during the preparation.
I used K&B's 1.4 book (Only discovered yesterday that it is actually the famous K&B book.) electronic version(no CD, no mock exams). Really liked it. Very much enjoyed the writing style and the humour. Also read Philip Heller and Simon Roberts's 5.0 book electronic version, and and mock exams by Marcus Green, K&B free mock exams and Java spec.
