Ans 1: "Java: How to program" by Deittel is one of the finest book on Java available in India. The explanation is excellent and easy to understand.
Ans 2:Khalid Mughal's book would come second to Deittel's for me. You have to evaluate yourself for your decision.
Ans 3: I have purchased Cameron McKenzie's books. I am in Bangalore. The Author personally helped me to get the books reach me in time here. He is a very helpful gentleman.
Ans 4: You can buy them on Amazon and pay through your credit card. Cameron has his own link inside Amazon, look for PlupJava publishing, in Amazon.com
Ans 5: Frankly I have not come across any book that can be said as specific book for SCJA. It is only Cameron's book. To support your read for the SCJA exam supplement it with books on UML, Servlets and EJBs, if you wish. Otherwise I have read that Cameron's book is more that enough to clear the exam.
