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? I have HeadFirst JAVA is it same as k&B
Thanks in advance
SCJP 1.4 (86%)<br />SCWCD 1.4 (86%)<br />----------<br />If You dont succeed at first time,call it Version 1.0 !!!
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.
