Hi Everybody !
I have a book " A Programmers Certification ..." by A.Mughal which I am studying . I also possess "Java 2: The complete Reference " but I don't take that book seriously for Certification purpose .I want to buy another book so that I can score in 90's . Which other book shall I buy . I am thinking to buy one book from the below two :
1) The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide
by Simon Roberts, Philip Heller, Michael Ernest
2) The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide: Programmer's and Developers Exams (With CD-ROM)
by Simon Roberts, Philip Heller, Michael Ernest

Which of the above two is a better choice. What are good and bad points of them.
Kindly help.

Hello Sujit!
I passed the SCJP exam last week, and the book I used for preparation was: The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide, isbn: 0782128254. Great book! It really helped me focus on what was important for the SCJP exam. It also included some very good mock exams.
Regards

The two books you listed are the same book. The one with the cd-rom is just the new edition.

With regards to AWT, you have to plug and play the different options of setVisible, setSiZe, setLayout things, if you want to be confident on it. No book covers this plug-and-play approach.
