Finally I got through the wall of SCJP. The exam was quite tough and its questions really scratches the concepts but if you are strong conceptually you are good
I'd really like to thank John Meyers, Marcus Green, Barry Gaunt, Jim Yingst, Anil kuchana, Jothi Shankar Kumar Sankararaj (I didn't miss any comma here ), Sharmaji and Corey McGlone for wonderful Blog and all those ranchers who directly or indirectly helped me.
Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates They have written a Bible for SCJP... The book is the BEST!!
This site is the BEST!!

I am also preparing for SCJP 1.5 , is K&B enough to pass the exam ? or
should i also purchase WizLabs exams ?
does K&B mock exam cover all types of questions ?
It would be very usefull if you provide tips....
I successfully completed the SCJP exam this week. The only book I used was the K&B book and it really is all you need. Trust me on this. There are enough free mock exams on the internet so whizlabs isn't really necessary in my opinion. However, I purchased it and learned a lot from it.
K&B focuses very well on SJCP 5.0 (otherwise specified) so you always know you are in right direction. There are tons of mock exam available freely on internet but be selective and go for the one that really serve your purpose. But this comes only after you are thorough with the basics.
Commercial mock exams are somewhat good in a way the questions are presented and explained with reasons and that you get hundreds of questions at one place. But if someone says that commercial exams have best collection of questions, I'd rather disagree to it.
And by the way, mock dumps are discouraged by javaranchers and by me too but it is always a good idea to take some mocks before you appear for real one. That will give you a good idea of how far you stand from what you want.
Here are some links that I dig from net and might prove helpful to you;
Examulator by Marcus Green
Generics FAQs by Angelika Langer
VGood list of mock exams
Questions by Sreenivasa Kumar Majji
Bill Brogden's site
very good quizzes from Abhilash
and our own java ranch's mock list
All the Best!
