I'm considering going for the SCJD and I was wondering if any of teh kind folk here at javaranch could provide me with some usefull resources (e.g. books, websites, words of encourgement etc.) to help prepare and/or decide if I really want to take the exam.
The most popular book in this forum seems to be The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam with J2SE 1.4 by Mehran Habibi. Mehran (known as Max out here) is sometimes active in this forum answering questions. (I don't know if he's out there lately though - I haven't been around here much.)
