Hi Inder(in German this means Indians),

So to your questions, go buy the K&B book for your SCJP preparation. Reading the complete reference will teach you nothing in-depth. You can keep it as a reference completely. These days knowing only one subject is not enough. So the learning path for Java would be...First SCJP, then study HFJS, then HFEJB. For a complete J2EE application, it would be good if you have knowledge on all these.

Hi Inder,

I know some German language...so I just told that Inder in german means Indian in english.

Anyways, Head First Servlets & JSP is called in short HFJS. These books are written by kathy and bert and they are the best known self teaching materials for basic and advanced java streams. I learned a lot from them.

The SCJA is a standalone (no requisites) certification to show that you have a rudimentary knowledge of several Java Technologies. It is not a pre-requisite for SCJP and is not a pre-SCJP exam as some book authors state.

SCJP has no requisites except (according to Sun) six or more months Java programming experience. So that's where you start. Learn some Java first with your favorite Java Beginner book or tutorial. Then pick the appropriate SCJP certification (SCJP 1.4 or 5.0) and get yourself one of the popular cerification books (K&B 1.4 or 5.0 , Mughal 1.4, Green 5.0, et c).

Except for the SCEA (Enterprise Architect) or SCJA certifications, all other Sun Java certifications require a pass of SCJP 1.2, SCJP 1.4, or SCJP 5.0

Oh yes, if you have an MSc you are certainly used to helping yourself. Go to Sun's Java site, look for the Certification link at the bottom of the page, and follow links as required to get information and objectives of all of Sun's certifications.
