hi folks,
I'm preparing the SCJEA 1. I found these books were mostly recommended in this forum. But I can not find them in my country.
Can anybody give me the URL where to download these books? The list is below.
1.Design Patterns: by Erich Gamma
2.UML Distilled: by Martin Fowler, Kendall Scott, Grady Booch
3.Java 2 Certification Training Guide : by Jamie Jaworski
BTW, what's the Blueprint refer to? J2ee specs 1.1 or Java Pet Store1.3?(sorry for my ignorant question)
Thanks for your time!
Jack

Jack, I don't think they are free. They are 2 out of three of the most popular books sold, so of course the publisher won't let that go out free.
I think you need to go to bookpool.com or amazom.com.
I think bookpool will probably be cheaper.

Oh, and here's a link to Jaworski's mock exams. There is a review questions protion that gives you a question, then answers it and gives you an explanation. It is pretty good.

Don't be disapointed...today Santa Claus is back
You can learn Design Pattern ( Better than GOF book because it provides Java source code !)
http://www.patterndepot.com/put/8/JavaPatterns.htm
UML distilled : some chapters are http://cseng.aw.com/book/0,,0201325632,00.html
I recommend this resource : clear explanation just enought for the exam !
http://www.togethersoft.com/files/services/umlonlinecourse/

Concerning Jaworski...IMHO, questions are not close to the real exam !

Really? So where is a good place to get some kind of mock questions to study from?

Yes. the Together UML link is really enough. Exam has only 3-4 simplistic questions.
Jaworki questions are not architecture scenarios. It is interesting reading for legacy systems.
Where can we find good exam questions ?
I would say going through Javaranch Forum (september-october)and others links....
IMHO, you just need to have a global knowlegde of each SCEA objectives..not deeply. Understand the concept not learn by heart is important !

In My Humble Opinion
like FYI (For Your Information),
RTFM (Read The Fine Manual),
ROTFL (Rolling On The Floor Laughing) ...
they are all common abbreviations in newsgroups
