I vote for Cameron's book (be sure to get 2nd edition).

I also used the Ucertify SCJA test software and got the SCJA questions from the SCJA.de ebook.

I did not try Wizlabs, but you should try the free demo version to see what you think...Uceertify also has a free demo version.

I found that Ucertify asked questions that were not in either the Published SCJA Objectives nor in the actual test...I don't know why...having said that, the overall value of UCertify was worth the money.

Also, there is tons of info and help on the net...just stay focused on the Published SCJA Objectives to insure that you are prepared for the real test.

Best of Luck, Pat Avery

---------------------
On Cameron's book:
---------------------
SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide for Test CX-310-019, 2nd Edition - Incredible Update to the former ExamScam Book by Cameron McKenzie.
-- This is the study guide which I used (I had the 1st edition)...it has over 100 questions as well as the study guide text.

SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Exam Questions Guide by Cameron McKenzie Passing Exam CX-310-019 2nd Edition.
--This is the question book (350 question)...I did not have this one so I cannot comment.

---------------------
On wizlab demo version and Ucertify demo version
---------------------
-- I found the full version of UCertify helpful, I did not get the full version of Wizlabs, but you should try the demo version anyway. Both offer your money back if you don't pass the first time.

---------------------
On SCJA.de ebook
---------------------
It has 200 questions and cost less than $8.00...I thought it was well worth the cost.

---------------------
ALSO, there's lots of free stuff on the web
