the sun material is definately good for bggineers of java, but it won't help you much with the exam.... and as for the sun classroom sessions i had taken it here in bombay and again the experience was the same it is good for freshers but not very helpful for the exam... for the exam K&B is one of the best books, so dont confuse yourself with all the options and focus only on K&B it is more than enough

Such Training certifications do not make any impact. End of the day, what counts is the knowledge and thats what you are gaining by completing SCJP.

So, please dont worry about other material for SCJP exam. However, in liesure time, you can refer such stuff for a good reading.

For SCJP, K&B is more than enough to score 90+.

Good Luck. BTW, i just sent you the mock papers.

I agree. Here's the link:
