thank you so much kathy and bert for giving us the wonderful certification book.
to those still preparing for the test, i used the following. 1. sierra and bates scjp book 2. self test software for java 1.4 3. surfing on javaranch
study threads well...make sure you understand the basic fundamentals...know which data structure does what..... which ones are interfaces..(SortedMap,SortedSet) and which ones are real classes (ArrayList, Hashtable...) and when to use which one...etc etc...and that should see you thru the exam with a good score !
If you are doing just Kathy's book back to back, that should be enough by itself !! Its that good !!
