Buddy,

I dont think there are any eBooks available for SCJA.
SCJA has wide coverage of Java technologies, one book may not be able to cover all that. There is a reasonable amount of reading that has to go in it.

If you look at SCJA subject coverage you will understand what one needs to prepare for. I suggest you to buy books. I know it costs.. I guess you can recover that once you get your certification...

Good luck,

Praneeth,

I did a lot of searching while studying for my SCJA certification, and the only ebooks I found were by the people at Head First for the UML topics, and Sang Shin's Java With Passion free online course.

The UML file is available on the Head First OOA&D page, look at the bottom for the link.

The Java With Passion introduction course provides the JEDI Introduction to Progamming I & II texts which are easy to read and provide lots of information and exercises. You do not need to be signed up for the course to access the coursework, but you do if you want to submit the homework assignments and recieve a graduation certificate.

In the spending some money category (or visiting a well stocked library), books I liked and referred to often were: Head First Java (2nd Ed.) by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates, UML Distilled (3rd Ed.) by Martin Fowler, and The ExamScam SCJA Study Guide by Cameron McKenzie.

I also did as many mock exams as I could, both free and purchased. You can find many through a web search that are specifically geared towards the SCJA. Having the knowledge required to pass the exam was important, but having practiced taking the exam was invaluable to me.

Hope this helped,
Good luck!
Geoff.
