I'm using Exam Prep Java 2 by William Brogden as my main book for preparation. Is this fine? Or should i use RHE or Khalid book. Do u find the information in the Exam prep book enough for answering all the mock questions? I find the information in this book very concise and up to the point. Is this enough or should i go in for a very detailed study (like in RHE/Khalid)for a good score in the exam. Please advice ASAP. Hoping to hear from u'all.
Thank you very much

I am using the Khalid book. The depth appears to be much deeper than the 'required' knowledge. The questions are much harder than any mock exam I have found. So, if you just want to pass the test, there maybe other books with less work. If you want to know Java inside out, read this one. I didn't read the Swing, JavaDoc and Applet chapters.
