- I started off with this forum and ended with javaranch forum. try to answer questions once you complete a topic. Helps a lot to know your strong and weak points. - I started studying from HFEJB, but being honest the SPECS are the thing.. initially I found the language a bit tough, but I went through the specs almost each page many many times. On the final day, Specs started talking to me... , In short specs has almost everything, many questions are direct HITS from specs. so just read the specs by heart. - HFEJB can be referred for topics, that you find difficult to understand from specs. - Exams: I gave mocks of exam links from SCBCD forum, Whizlabs.
In short, if you can digest the 500 pages of Specs, 90+ will be a breeze, believe me.
