Im currently reading "Beginning Java 2". And after that Im thinking of reading "A programmers guide to Java Certification". Will that be enough to get enough info to complete and get the Java Certification?
And another question, how is it to take the java certification test?

Hi Dan,
Have you read the JavaRanch Certification FAQ? That should answer a number of possible questions. Also, check Maha Anna's pages and the Bunkhouse Book Reviews
Hope that helps.

Why don't you take one of Marcus Green's mock exams and see how well you fare. Go to google and search for marcus green.
There are 3 levels of Java certification (from Sun):
1.) Java Programmer
2.) Developer
3.) Architect
You need, and should, take them in that order. The Marcus Green mock exams are for the first one.

Dan,
Check out Sun's Certification Objectives. There's a link to the pages in the JavaRanch Certification FAQ.
