Hello Fellows,

I am planning to take preparation for SCJP 6. Could anybody please recommend any book for preparing myself. I am currently go with SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for JAVA 6- by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates. Is it enough or should I skim through few more. It is to be noted here that I don't have any professional experience in Java. But, I learned IVOR HORTON's Beginning JAVA 2 SDK 1.4 Edition and thus know the basics of the language.

Thanks in advance in anticipation of early replies.

The book is sufficient for the exam. But I would suggest to write a lot of code. This way you get a better hand on things.

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I did not notice the naming policy carefully and mistakenly chose a name that contradicts with that policy. I am expressing deep sorry for that. It is really be a great thing for me to be here with you people and I hope I will get lots of tips from you for getting success in the certification.

Thanks once again.

The Kathy-Bert book teaches you all of the topics in the exam. After you finish with the book, be sure to give as many mock exams as you can. You can find a list of mock exams here- ScjpMockTests...
