This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I am new to this forum and need some advice. I am planning to take SCJP6 examination in June 2013 and have been reading Kathy Sierra for the same.
However, I haven’t done a lot of programming. Can you please advise me some good books/ websites for enhancing my programming skills? Resources which have programming assignments would be more helpful.
Also for the examination point of view, would it be advisable to code on NetBeans or on command prompt.
