I have 2 years of experience with Java and I am planning to apply for 5.0 exam. I need to ask experienced people:

what is the best combination of resources to have in order to pass this exam with best scores? Some books disappointed me by explaning lot of details and not hitting the target directly! what is the real best book for 5.0?

Another question: what is the real pre-test to take to make sure I am really ready to apply for the exam with high score?

I wish I have complete answer. Thanks for your help.

Amer! I suggest you better go around this place atleast once. There have been post on SCJP 5.0 plenty and plenty of times, and I tell you this forum already has all your answers. Try and see, it will fetch you more info than what you expect from one single-complete reply here.
