Hi..i have read Khalid Mughal..for SCJP well.Does the standard of that book match with the SCJP 1.4 exam pattern??Or do we need to read anything else??What score can we expect in the real exam after meeting the standards of khalid??

Thanks...for your replies...

Mughal is more advanced than SCJP in areas like collections. On the other hand, it doesn't have trick questions as clever as the exam. I mean "does not compile" answers to questions with normal-looking code.

If you have mastered Mughal, you will surely pass. You can practice on the many mock exams linked from the SCJP Q&A:

For a really high score, check out the K&B book:

and also Sun's own $75 mock exam package:

Thanks...for your reply..Mike..
I am going to take the exam in 2 weeks from now...hence i think i can now practice only the mock exams as i will not have time to read K&B now..
