This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'd like to have an answer about which book is most recommended to get SCMAD. Unfortunately, as I see, there is not so much info for SCMAD as for SCWCD, SCBCB, SCJP... and so on...
Thank you for helping me.
Hi Luis, Since there is no exam-specific book for the SCMAD exam, you might need to read general Java ME book available in the market. I do recommend Wireless Java, Second edition of Jonathan Knudsen. Here is the book's official home page.
Since you would have been through most of the available general Java ME book, I was wondering which book did you find most detailed on PushRegistry Concepts?.

None of the books I have on my bookshelf dedicates one whole chapter for PushRegistry. So I enjoy reading the PushRegistry section of MIDP 2.0 specification.

Most users are usually more confortable with an hands-on approach and Knudsen's book is good at that.
But for study you should not overlook the actual documentation for each of the APIs covered by SCMAD. They provide the best reference ... and really should be studied. Check links for them in the SCMADLinks section
My advice for anyone studying for SCMAD is to create a list of specs section to read according to the SCMAD exam objectives.
The book by Roger Riggs et al, is actually a very good one for study, but it essentially contains the same information as the actual CLDC & MIDP API specifications (plus it does not cover MMAPI 1.1 - just MIDP Media API - nor WMA 1.1). [ October 27, 2006: Message edited by: Eduardo Marques ]
