Hi,
I have been preparing for last 1.5 month. I started with Head First Java (New Edition). I am now reading "Complete Java 2 Certification (5.0 Edition)" by Phillip Heller. After that I am planning to read "MZ SCJP 5.0 Notes".
My question is that Should I read K&B 1.4 version.... Or I should go for WhizLab's or Sun's ePractice tests ??
I want to give SCJP 5.0 By the end of August. Please give me suggestions/advices. Also Which practice tests would be better ?

Thanks...

Regards,

If you started your study with SCJP 5.0, I guess you dont have to border with SCJP 1.4 materials.

For practices, yes, you could consider SUN's ePractice or Whizlabs' mock tests, however, I wonder whether it is worth to pay for that expensive costs.

You can find MZ's guide here:

However, you have to buy the books.
