This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I was searching for books to prepare for the SCEA/OCMJEA certification. I found the SCEA Books through the SCEA links (updated december 2010).
Most of these books seem "somewhat" outdated (the design patterns book is from 1994).
Surely there must be more recent alternatives of the same quality availabe for some of these books.
If you know of any, please add a reply with details of the book to this topic!
