Hello Friends, I am planning to write SCJP 5.0 by the end of August. First problem , I am facing is the books' selection for SCJP 5.0. I have shortlisted following material:
1. Head First Java (covering J2SE 5.0) 2. Complete Java 2 Certification Guide (for SCJP 5.0) 3. K&B 1.4 (as I dont think K&B for 5.0 will be out anytime soon) 4. Khalid Mughal's Book (again for 1.4) 5. SCJP 5.0 Study Guide available on JavaRanch
I would like to know what out of all these is unnecessary and which is a MUST. Also what should be the sequence of reading ? Please help me in making my stratagy for clearing SCJP 5.0
Thanks in Advance to all My dear Ranchers....

I recommend "Complete Java 2 Certification" ... the new rev just came out. But I'm EXTREMELY biased!
