Is this book enough for preparation for SCJP 1.5 ? On the cover of the
book it says that the book covers Java 5.0. However, I didn't see any specific chapter or topic cover Java 5. Can Kathy or Bert clarify ? Can someone recommend a book for me to read or any website to get some notes. I need to take this exam in eight weeks time. Please help.

According to K&B it's not enough.

it's not enough - its purpose is very different. HF Java is meant to be a beginner's Java book - it really doesn't cover the SCJP topics.



p.s. we just finished the last chapter of the K&B tiger cert book
