This topic is well covered at Bunkhouse. I'll give you my opinion.
You don't need any certification guides other than K&B. I tried several of them like Heller's, Jaworsky's, or Exam Cram. Some are not bad, but some even had me unlearn their concepts afterwards.
If you're welthy, buy Khalid Mughal's Second edition to supplement K&B.
Having said that, no guide will prepare you to pass unless you have coded, broken, and fixed tons of examples yourself and taken as many good mocks as you can.
The mocks are here: Mocks. Dan's Exams is a must.
I also suggest that you actively participate in the forum discussions - it proved to be invaluable in my case.
Hope this helps.
