Books like head first for spring, for an OCPJP6 passed student ?

Are there any beginner level books for someone with basic knowledge of java/OCPJP 6 ? Are the topics covered in OCPJP enough to begin learning about spring ?

We recommend getting Spring In Action 3rd edition.

Spring aims to have you write plain simple Java code, so if you know how to write a Java class with setters and getters, constructors, instance variables and methods based on interfaces, then you will be fine.

Good Luck

looks worth looking at. However, this review sounds discouraging:
Amazon review
The reviewer does have a valid point about the "knights and minstrels" example in the book. Any more suggestions ? Preferably something similar to "head first" series of books ?

Thanks.

I have seen that review and I completely disagree, his point is so off the mark it is funny. As a matter of fact, I believe that my Spring in Action 3 does not even have a knights and minstrels example. There is no Head First Spring and I doubt there will be one since the Spring In Action is really the best book. The Author is a SpringSource employee that has been well known in this field and a great developer.
