Hello everyone !! i have known java for a month now and i am planning to give scjp 6 soon.
i have already completed head first java and K&B guide for scjp 6 once
1. i am really confused should i now pick up another book or should practise mock exams ? in case of book please specify which one?
2. i have read at many places that i should code as much as possible now that adds another option in my dilemma that should i know concentrate on coding or questions or books???
Thanks in advance

In my oppinion, you must try some mock exams... You will know what's your level, and what topic is your weakness.
If you don't feel comfortable with the results, come back and review K&B (it's a great book!).

Hope this helps.
