Head First Java is a text that really teaches you Java from the ground up. Of course, it does so in that unique "Head First" way that many of us have grown quite fond of. While much of the material in the text is applicable to the SCJP exam, it was not written with the intention of being a SCJP study guide.
If you're interested in finding a good book for the SCJP exam, check out the certification section of the Bunkhouse. Kathy and Bert acually wrote a SCJP book (here), which is very popular with current SCJP candidates. [ March 30, 2005: Message edited by: Corey McGlone ]
