This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been reading this forum for a week and found a lot of valuable information and cool guys. I decided to prepare the SCJP exam using the book: "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide" from Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates having following post messages of many certified programmer from this forum. But I just realized that this web site was created by the authors of this last book and therefore, I would like to know if someone can advice objectively this book compared to the Sybex Book from Philip Heller & Simon Roberts: "Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide"
