hi
i am thinking of doing the OCPJP 6 exam, but looking on amazon for books for OCPJP there only seems to be the practice exams, no study guide,

should i just go ahead and get the SCJP study guide (i all ready have my headfirstjava book)

thanks

Hi Mary,

The Oracle exam for Java 6 is basically the same as the Sun version. So any SCJP 6 book is relevant. The new Oracle exam for Java 7 is very different that the Java 6 exam, and books for the Java 6 exam will prepare you only partially for the Java 7 exam.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
