Hi all,

I am planning to take up the SCJP 1.4 exam and I am collecting materials for the same. I am having Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 - by Kathy Siera book. Can anyone suggest some more books that would help me for better preparation.

I passed the exam by using Kathy's book as the only reference. From my experience the book you have should be enough for the exam.

You may not have noticed that we've got a whole forum dedicated to the SCJP exam. I'll move this thread there for you.
