I have the same question too. I am looking for a good book as a guideline to start. There is one called "Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide" by Simon Roberts, Philip Heller, Michael Ernest, Roberts, but not sure it is good though. Can anyone give suggestion?

The RHE book is the best for the Developer's certification. Boone's book covers some of the topics, but not in as much detail.

Hi guys,
You can read the following books and may serve as a
reference guide while you doing the assignment.
Core Java volume 1 and Volume 2
Graphics JAVA Mastering JFC.
You don't need to read the whole book. Read only chapters
which are needed to compelete assingment such as
Swing classes
and etc...
I read relevent sections from the follwing certification books just for reference.
Java 2 Certification - Jamie Jaworski
Java 2 Exam Guide - Barry Boone/william Stanek
And don't forget to read RMI tutorials and archives at
SUN site (if you plan to use RMI in your assingment)
This is just my opinion and that's what I did to compelete
I agree. Here's the link:
