Hi Sonir,
All the best for the coming exams. I did a lot of test programs, just to see how certain codes would be compiled and executed. This really helped me in understanding the concepts.
For the purpose of the exam, I bought 2 books and they're really good. They are:
The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide (Simon Roberts, Philip Heller and Michael Ernest)
Java 2 Exam Cram (Bill Brodgen)
Read and understand all 13 chapter in the Roberts book and all the chapters in the Brodgen book. What especially helped me were the mock exams in the CD included in the Roberts book. Do all the mock exams in the CD. I think there are 4 or 5 of them. The questions presented is very similiar in nature to the real exam.
There are also a lot of questions in the Brodgen book. Attempt them all and read the explanations. They're very good.
Both books can be bought through amazon.com or hopefully, from a local bookstore.
If you think you don't have the time to read both books, then I recommend that you buy one of them. Browse both books and choose the one you feel will help you most.
Also, visit these sites:
www.jchq.net
www.javaprepare.com
www.javaranch.com (I'm sure u know this already)
www.ibiblio.org/javafaq
The last site actually provides Java lecture notes taught in an American university. I found them very helpful in the initial stages of learning Java.
Phew! That's was a lot! All the best again and be cool and calm when taking the exam. It definitely helps.
Gaia.
