This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I passed the SCJP 1.4 a couple of weeks back with around 75%. Could have probably done better, but just wanted to get it over with. I'd like to thank Kathy and Bert for 2 wonderful books that helped me pass this certification, I used both the Head First book and the SCJP Study guide, as well as the practice exams from WhizLabs. I found the questions on the real exam to be considerably easier than those from WhizLabs, so I would highly recommend this as a good study resource.
