Hi,

I'm going to try for my SCJP. I have the Mughal, Rasmussen book for the Java SE6 exam.

Is the book sufficient to learn what I need to know? Does anyone recommend the web course or in class training?

About me: I'm a pretty good self learner but I wonder if I'm missing out if I don't get the web course or in class training.

Thanks.

Ok, thanks for the advice.

Any thoughts on the web courses and/or in-class training? Worthwhile? General thoughts?

Interesting.

I'm not totally clear on what you mean. Do you mean that Javaranch offers a free-of-cost online web course? I'm not very familiar with the site yet. Can you give me a link?

Thanks.
