So i have this compulsory certification that i need to pass at my workplace which includes this in the syllabus:

Java GUI
oAWT, Containers, Components, Frame, Panel
oLayout Managers, FlowLayout, BorderLayout, GridLayout etc
oGUI Event Handling, Listeners
oOther GUI Concepts like menu, menu items, color, font, Tree, Table etc

Now, i am a newbie to AWT/Swing, and though i'm an SCJP 5.0, GUI was not a part of it.

I need to find a good book to start off with Swing/AWT. Looked into the bunkhouse and found a few, but i need suggestions from you.
