Hi
I would get hold of 'The SCJD exam with J2SE 1.4' by Mehran Habibi, Jeremy Patterson and Terry Camerlengo.
This is a good book and shows you how to build the app, it also shows you how to use either RMI or Sockets which is useful, particularly in the exam when you have to justify your choices.
There is one problem with the book though. It does essentialy show you how to build the app. If you want to learn more build your app without the book and use Javaranch as a good source. Then read the book to see how they did it. Youll learn more that way.
Hope this helps.

Hi:
If your goal is to get SCJD, then download the assignment first, start to build small prototype if you are not familiar with a concept. The assignment is not hard, besides, you can find many posts helpful.

Goto the links page -- check the top of the forum -- there's sample chapters from a couple of books available.
Personally, I like the ideas and questions from Kathy & Bert's book, Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2: Study Guide (Exam 310-035), Third Edition. They don't tell you what to do, but they do ask the kind of questions that you should be asking when you work on the assignment.
They cover a lot of the non-programming issues as well.
If you're looking for free, and you're in the U.S., check out your local public library. You might be surprised at what useful resources are there as well.
