This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I just recommend reading K&B and solving its questions 2 times after that nothing is required for practice I did whizlab mocks only 2 papers. There is not a single question out of kathy sierra book. Generic and regex questions were too simple in the exam but thread questions were good.
