Hi!! Friends,
I am planning to give my SCJP 2 1.4 exam. I have hitherto studied from the Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide.
Can you please guide me as to which book I should use next to strengthen my concepts.
Thanks,
Ashwin Philar

do {
Reread the book you have together with the Java Language Specification;
Find the Java 1.4 documentation and find the new features section which explains assertions;
Take some of Dan Chisholm's Mock Exams;
} while(!feelConfident());
-Barry (possibly unreached);
Corrected compilation error!

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

Thanks Barry,
But this book does not have extensive questions coverage...
I need something that'll contain lotsa exam like questions....
Thanks again,

Ashwin,
My mock exam has nearly 200 questions and most of the answers have detailed explanations. I think that the single topic exams are particularly useful as you work through any study guide chapter-by-chapter.

JavaRanch has a link for mock exams and a lot of FAQs.
Best of luck.
