and I'll be damned but it was the same % (88) as satya (Congrats to satya!). Thanks to all here for the thought provoking discussions. Only commercial book I used: Callaways's. The 7 horseshoe rating on the links page is about right I think. Other than that: read specs, write code, STW, and hang around here some. Repeat as necessary. My next one will be vendor specific. You guys are great!! JR is a great research place for certifications. Since I rarely do, I'll sign myself: Guy Allard SCJP2, XML V1, OOAD/UML, SCWCD
Jimmy, Guy: Request...sorry din't mean to hijack your thread. Did you know javaranch would like to hear your review on this book. Please feel free to post your review in the Book Review forum when you get a chance. Thanks. - satya..................the more the merrier.
