I have been working in Java/J2EE since 1 year. I regularly visit the java related websites. And JavaRanch.com is my first choice though I am planning to take the SCJP 1.4 exam in another 2 months. Can anyone suggest me one good Certification book? And also any suggestions for free online mockup exams? Thanks SY
Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates book ISBN#0-07-222684-6 seems to be the best book from what I've seen on this site. It is also the one I'm using As for mock exams, there are links to plenty of them on the FAQ of this site. I recommend Dan's and Marcus Green's exam.
As others have I second the K&B book. I think I bought all the others and when I got ahold of K&B in January, I almost burned the others. Also JQPlus exam, really helped in the last 2 months. For $25 it provides an exam similiar in format, which helped the learning curve. I felt its tough questions exceeded the exam. Some very estoric questions. doug t
