Hi everyone!

I've finished reading Head First Java and am looking for some additional study material. I've decided to go with one of Cameron's books and I'd like to start off with one for now. What are people's recommendations - study guide or exam questions?

Both of them if you can. But if you can afford only one book, buy the study guide as that book includes 1 full exam and about 15 questions per chapter (if I am not wrong).

Good luck in your preparation. When you pass the exam, add your name in

Wish me luck too in my SCJD project assignment.

If you're going to choose either, I'd suggest the SCJA Study Guide. Even that book has over 100 mock certification exam questions.

If you really wan't to solidify your knowledge and really ensure a killer score, go for the SCJA Questions book as well, but if you can only pick one, go with the SCJA Study Guide.
