Go for Kathy & Bert's SCJP book and another good book is Java2 Certification by Khalid Mughal.

Thank for your suggestion. I have that book with me. But the title is SCJP5. I am worried whether it is useful for scjp1.4 or not. I searched the syllabus but couldn't get find on sun. Can you please send me the link

If you're studying for 1.4, then you should stay away from 1.5 books, because they may confuse you. Any particular reason why you don't go for 1.5 instead ?

I had a wrong conecption about the 1.4 and 1.5 earlier so I thought like that but now i have decided to go for 1.5. Because later we have to go for upgrading the certification.

Thanks
