I am new to Java and wanted to know which would be the best book to study for OCAJP 7 while getting a good idea of good practices in JAVA programming.
and weather self study would be enough to clear the exam.
P.S I have just completed my bachelor's in Mechanical and while I have some experience in C#, I lack the basic knowledge a student of IT would have. But i am determined to be a software developer.
So please respond accordingly.
Thank you Robert I will go with one of the Oracle Study guide's which ever is available (there seems to be an availability issue of OCA study guides in India ) and another book i have not yet decided on .
Is JAVA The complete Edition by Herbert Schildt a Good Book ??
I will keep that in mind Richard, Thanks for the tip .
