Hello Friends,
I am new to the IT industry and for future I want to know few answers
--> Does Certification in JAVA helps for growth?
--> How to go for the certification?
--> How to prepare for the certification from the 1st level to last level?
--> What are the books which I can refer?

1. Certifications look good on paper ONLY. They are the proofs that you know the language, but not of how well you know it.
2. Hows, and Whens for OCJP. <- CLICK
3. Reference books, WWW, and CodeRanch, ofc.
4. Kathy Sierra And Bert Bates, Ganesh and Sharma are mostly preferred.
