Hi Everyone,

I have just cleared SCJP 1.4 with 86% score. M thinking of doing SCWCD 1.4 within the next one and half months. I have bought the Head First book by K&B, but m not sure that i would like there way of writing. I have read the review for Professional SCWCD Certification Book by Daniel Jeep and everyone has praised that. However the book is for an older version of SCWCD and the new version has still not come I suppose. Can anyone tell me if buying this book is worth buying or not.
What about any other book.?
Thanks in advance.

HFSJ is used by many ranchers. If you're used to the style of the Head First series, don't hesitate.
If it doesn't fit you (you can't tell until you read one !), you can try other books, like those listed here.

I also would suggest to start off with HFSJ, which itself would suffice for the exam.

Heard through people that Manning's SCWCD prepartion kit is a good book to revise just before you appear the exam.

Good luck dude
