I am planning to give SCJP in near future.
and i am following this forum for some days now.
in lots of posts I found the mention of K&B Books.
I know this may sound silly but can I have the exact title of the book?

Hi,

K&B books are books authored by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
Search on amazon for these, or at your favourite book store
"Head First Java, 2nd Edition"
"Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)"

I have the second one and really found it good, as a help in studying for the exam. I am not sure what the other book is like, never read it (Sorry Bert and Kathy) so I can't comment.

The "K&B" book is:"Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)"

There will be a new edition for Java SCJP 5.0 soon, hopefully at the end of this month (Sep 2005) or next month.
