Hi guys, You can read the following books and may serve as a reference guide while you are doing the assignment. Core Java volume 1 and Volume 2 Graphics JAVA Mastering JFC. You don't need to read the whole book. Read only chapters which are needed to compelete assingment such as RMI Swing classes sockets I/O LayoutManager and etc... I read relevent sections from the follwing certification books just for reference. Java 2 Certification - Jamie Jaworski Java 2 Exam Guide - Barry Boone/william Stanek And don't forget to read RMI tutorials and archives at SUN site (if you plan to use RMI in your assingment) This is just my opinion and that's what I did to compelete assginement.

Do not buy the book Java 2 Certification - Jamie Jaworski It only re-phrases Sun's instruction of the development assignment. Core Jave 2 (Volume 2) is good. Although not covering topics very deep, it should be enough for the assignment.
