Gang of Four
J2EE
MVC

I always look at those. If you are not familiar with patterns, I suggest you buy a book that helps with SCJD, eg, Max's book.

At least the following:
- MVC
- Proxy
- Adapter
- Observer
Some people have used
- DAO
- TO

Hi Daniel,

I would also add Facade and Factory to the list.

Remember though, that patterns are a tool to help you understand the architecture / use a common way of handling a problem. They are not something you must use. So if you can't see how one of the patterns mentioned fits into your design, then don't force it.

I know that there have been plenty of people who have passed with good scores who have not knowingly used any patterns at all.

Regards, Andrew

The gang of four book and I am currently using reading design patterns explained http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0201715945/qid=1097453452/sr=2-2/ref=pd_ka_2_2/002-2156491-7172801

its very very good, explains on how to break down a problem using patterns. Apart from that a book on UML, unified process etc is helpful but not neccary. I am just using SCJD as an excuse to learn anything and everything I can
