Hi ,

I just cleared the SCJP 1.4 with 81% a week back. I am 1 week into the preparaion for SCWCD.

After going thru the forum postings there is little doubt about which book to use. I have HFSJ and I already loving it.

I also have "SCWCD Exam Study Kit [by Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Malavia] "

Can anyone give me a review on this book and tell me how it compares with HFSJ. Also how good is the SCWCD Exam Study Kit for the exam. Can i use it as a secondary book or is the HFSJ sufficient.

Thanks for all the help and replies !!!

I just had a brief look at the contents of the study kit by Hanumanth Deshmuk. My personal opinion is it's going to be very difficult to sustain interest reading that book till the end. I feel it's somewhat dry (particularly if you have read Head first books before), but the coverage is good.

SCWCD Exam Study Kit is a good book. I read its first version. On this forum only I read that the second version is not as good as the first version - the coverage for the new examination is better in HFSJ and it is more interesting reading. I am using HFSJ now.
I agree. Here's the link:
