Even I have been preparing for scjp6 since last 1 month. Due to my tight schedule, not being able to give full day for it, but 1-2 hours a day. Going through kathy sierra, its a nice book. I was bit confused about the book which I should follow, but found Kathy sierra to be suitable for examination point of view. Initially I found it bit lengthy to grab but then slowly its working fine for me. It needs some basic java concept before one can start going through it. If any one have better suggestions other than kathy sierra please do intimate us. Currently my approach is to finish up kathy sierra atleast thrice, because each and every para has utmost importance from exam perspective. Then I will be concentrating on mock tests. As I am new to this forum as well as to this world of certified professionals, so any certified people out here are most welcome to give us some good suggestions.
