1) Please don't shout. Typing your subject in all caps is really not necessary, and most of us find it annoying. I have fixed it for you, but please don't do it again.

2) What do you mean by "Advanced Java"? Isn't that sort of like saying "Advanced medicine" or "advanced engineering"? There are so many possible topics and there are scores of books on each topic.

Effective Java is one of those books that every Java programmer who wants to get better should read.

You should probably think about furthering your certification. Personally I find that its the best way to learn. You pick a certificate you want to earn then you buy books aimed at that particular certification.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
