This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Cam, JDBC knowledge is not required for the assignment. For books and other useful information check the SCJD Links and FAQ Page. I can't speak for any other books that I haven't read but I used Max Habibi's book and it helped a lot. Good luck. [ December 11, 2003: Message edited by: Ken Krebs ]
