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.
The best book on Design Patterns is the Manning book. Unfortunately, however, this is the only topic in which the books excels (in my opinion).
My notes should do the trick. The J2EE Patterns Catalog can also help. In general, stay away from mock exam Design Patterns questions unless the mock exam is from a book - otherwise the (easy) topic of Design Patterns may become clouded with misinformation.
