FWIW, RHE is the only book I used to review for the exam (you did get the 2nd edition, right?). If you have programmed in a similar language like C/C++ or even Pascal/Delphi, you should be fine. You can also download Bruce Eckel's "Thinking in Java" book for free. This is also a good reference for those with previous programming experience.
Besides, if you browse through this forum long enough, you will find most, if not all, of the questions and answers from most of the books anyway.
HTH,
Junilu

besides some of the links Val gave, i would add that visit this forum, ie certification forum everyday and read what people are asking here, read the replies, participate in the posts, ask questions and learn. I spent hours on this ranch everyday before i took the test. Don't leave any concepts because that is what is the test all about.
I don't know what is your background, ie have you programmed in OO before or not. But for me OO was new and i read the RHE and KM book. RHE was simpler to digest for a first reading of a topic and for digging deeper used KM. it can be a good combination to study both, specially who are new to OO or programming.
If you have any specific questions you can always email me. There is a feature called as Private messages in this forum.
download the velmurugan notes and read the maha anna's web page. velmurugan notes is like a revision when you are in the final stages of your exam.
Design your strategy. there are 11 exam objectives and they are represented well by KM and RHE book. There is no escape from the fact that every one has to read all the chapters. sometimes called as cover to cover, scary but true.
hope this helps.
