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.
I have compiled the following reading list as a preparation to SCJA:
Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Head First Java, 2nd Edition SUN e-learning: WJB-110-SE6 Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language SUN e-learning: WJTB-310 Java Platform Overview for Managers SCJA Study Guide for Test CX-310-019, 2nd Edition
Please let me know if the above is sufficient. I am thinking of completing the above in 3 weeks (fulltime). I do not have any Java background and am with structured programming experiences.
I think it looks like a good list. I'm not totally sold on the Sun e-Learning courses. Perhaps you could post back and let us know what you thought of them, not just as courses, but as SCJA prep courses as well.
Good luck on the SCJA exam!
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
