I have just completed my SCJP, SCWCD & SCBCD and I am just trying to read some good books to sharpen my skills. I checked out Amazon, but I am not sure which books would really help!
I dont want to Master on these technologies, just that I would like to get a good overview & learn the tip-n-tricks. I am looking for small-mid size books that would be easy-to-understand and from a beginners perspective. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Sonal
