I will decide to enter SCJP and prepare by a book. I will decide to buy "SCJP Exam for J2SE 5 from Paul Sanghera". Is there anyone who bought and prepared with it? Did you recommend it?

thanks lot for your recommendations.

Well, it gets three (only three?) very positive 5 star reviews on Amazon. But I have not noticed any posters here quoting from it or asking any technical questions from it. The problem is that if not many people use it then I guess you will get less responses to your queries here in this SCJP forum. It must be very similar in content to the K & B book, even if written in a more formal style.

Oh yes, search the forum for the author's surname - you will find a few posts mentioning the book - three recommendations came from the same person (his only posts on JavaRanch).

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
