Object Oriented Programming...

My two weakest subjects on my SCJP exam were error handling and Object Oriented Programming.

Where can I get more information about these two topics? Thank God for K&B, I have their book, however, I'm looking for more.

I almost feel as if I should have a dozen or so exercises. Anyone else have this kind of problem?

Apparently SCJD exam wants to see more in depth knowledge.

For OOP related to Java, I recommend "Beginning Java Objects: From Concept to Code". The book is divided into three sections. Section 1 takes you on a tour of OOP and how Java implements OOP; Section 2 takes you through analyzing a project (OOA: Object-Oriented Analysis) in OOP terms; Section 3 takes you through building the project you analyzed in Section 2, using Java.

Also, be sure to download and study The Java Tutorial, free from Sun's Java pages.
