From you post it is not clear that whether you have any prior java knowledge?Any way,keep attached with this forum, read all the threads carefully start participating in Q and A...
K&B is a very good book to startwith and endwith...keep reading this book.

Anil, experience will help you out but lot of surprises are awaiting for you in the exam until otherwise you prepare carefully. Best of luck. K&B is the best one to refer with.

Hello "Lina"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a JavaRanch Naming Policy for displayed (screen) names. Your displayed name must consist of a first name (or an initial), a space, and a family name (in that order) and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours "Lina", does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

Posters with nonconforming displayed names will be locked out of JavaRanch after a few posts using those names.

Hi Ranchers,

I need to give the SCJP 1.5 exam on or before 15 dec 2006.
presently i am reading the K&B book but thats the only reading material i have.

I have some mock exam links which i hope to start looking at soon .
I can go through khaled mughal , simon roberts etc. but i read some ranchers say to go through ONLY 1 book and not through multiple.

Can anyone pls help guide me out of the confusion.
And any tips for the mock exams etc. and anything else regarding SCJP15 exam would be more than welcome .

Thanks in advance.
