Please excuse me for recommending my own book, but I wrote "Ground-Up Java" specifically for people in your situation.

Hey Phillip,

No excuses for that,

Its a pretty nice book. but I think you also wrote one more book for SCJP which I read before giving SCJP in 2002. that was a nice one.

Yeah this was the one "Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide"
