It's may sound like a stupid question but it's better to ask.

In SCJA FAQ some JavaRanch members have recommended the study of J2EE tutorial, my question is, I have to go through all of the tutorial or only related the parts related to exam objectives...

I think that the J2EE Tutorial is way too bulky. I like Cameron McKenzie's Sun Certified Java Associate book. It is a better overview of all of Java technologies like Sun intended the SCJA to be. In this case less is much more.

If you get Cameron's book, make sure that you get the new edition. It has many improvements.

If you do have problems getting the book, let me know. I changed distributors, so it has a wider availability.

Email me through JavaRanch if there's a problem.

Mr. McKenzie,

I am having serious problems about availability of your books in Bangalore, INDIA.
I must remind you that there are thousands of Java professionals in this city alone, more than anywhere else in the world. We have more than 3000 Software services/products company in this city. I am sure you are aware of these facts. There is no IT company in the world who have not got their research centre or development centre here, except Apple.
We Bangaloreans deserve your attention and would like to have your books available here.

Hoping to get a copy of your books at the earliest, (Like tomorrow).

Best wishes,
Imtiaz

Cameron's book is excellent, but it has several north american references, so i'm not sure if its readability would be satisfying for non north americans. but i guess that's not for me to decide.

at any rate, why can't you buy a used copy from amazon.com and pay higher shipping for overseas shipping?
