I passed the SCJP exam thanks to the K&B book, all the questions in the K&B book and 5 or six mock exams.

My next goal is the SCBCD.

I read the book of Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates "Sun Certified Java Programmer and Developer" Ch. 1 thru 9. After reading each chapeter there is a Two Minute Drill which I read carefully. Then I answered the questions going with each chapter. When I finished I went through all the Two Minute Drills again. Then I answered all the questions at the end of each chapter aain in one go. Then I did the two Mock Exams that come on CD with the book. One is open book and not timed, the other is closed book and timed.
Then I did the "bonus exam". Those are two exams that you can download after installing the CD and did those. Finally I went to http://www.enthuware.com/purchaseall.html and downloaded the free exam of SCJP 1.4. I passed all five mock exams in one go. That way I knew I was ready.

The Two Minute Drills are really important because they summarized the chapter.
Oh yeah I also did all the exercises in the book. Very important I find personally.

Lots of luck with you studies.

Cindy.
