Basically, you dont need to read the whole JLS, but if you have some doubts on the language specification, you can read the related parts.

It's very good if you can read Kathey's book because it gives you lots of Tips andTrick which other books don't give you. My advice is if you can find it READ IT. Specially Arrays, Garbage Collection, Threads, Inner classes

And read the spec also if you can. It gives u some valuable info.

I totally agree. Read K&B if you can find it. The book gives you valuable tips and prepares you well for the exam. IMO JLS should be used more like a reference document. Moreover, reading K&B would be more enjoyable then JLS .

Hope this helps and good luck!

I read K&B too and I pass with 93% 1 1/2 years ago. It is a very good guide book.
