Hello friends,
I want to purchase a book for SCJP 1.4 . Can anybody suggest me which is the best one. Although, I am having lots of softcopy related to certification.
So, which book will be best for for all the topic as a reference.

That is all down to opinion.
I found the K Mugal book for 1.4 very hard to read, I think, for me rading the language spec would have been easier.
However I find the K&B book for 1.5 a joy to read and have managed to complete the book once, where as I never managed to finish the K Mugal book.

for me the more personal, conversational approach employeed by K&B was much better then the "dry" text book approach I associate with K Mugal.

Hi
I have both KB and khalid Mughal and one from sybex also.
KB is the best-ever book.I hardly open Khalid Mughal.
Thanks

i never heard of or read the K Mugal book, but i am absolutely convinced the kandb book will be sufficient.
