Hello everybody,
My question to anyone who wants to answer: If you had one month to get ready for the Developer's exam, were stuck on a desert island, and could only bring ONE book to the island with you......which book would you bring?!?!?

I would not even consider writing the Developer Exam without consulting this site on a regular basis. I agree that there is no better tool for sharping one's knowledge. However, as neccesary as this site is, I find books provide an equally important ingredient for preparing for the test (especially for those of us who are relatively new to Java), and that ingredient is structure. My SCJP Exam books have been like a roadmap, while this site has helped me appreciate the view. If anyone could recommend a good road map to me, I would be grateful.

Hi Chris,
well as per the others , I too accept the fact that the best book fo developer exam is the one having link to these site.
But for somethings i liked the following book
Java Design Patterns by James W Coopers.(REal good)
and also if you plan to take up RMI as your base, i would recommend to take up the following link
http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/rmi/index.html

Muchas Gacias to Sid and Mark. I prefer a wide variety of learning resources, but there is something comforting about knowing that I have already found what is in the general consensus to be the best resource around.

I am preparing for the Developer exam too, and I think that "Effective Java" by Josuha Bloch seems to be a great book to have around... Comments, anyone? I was also thinking about "Practical Java" by Peter Haggar.

Hi, Guys:
Why not check this site to get more knowledge about how to do your assignment. I have benefited from it. I don't feel frustrated any more. The url is http://hometown.aol.com/javalearners/promotion/index.html
By the way, the material marked all related online sites, and gives many pieces of code to show the tech we should use. Just follow the steps listed there.

There are no instructions on this website just more questions.
JavaRanch is a much better site... because it forces you to think and arrive at you own solution rather than pay some person a great deal of money to spoon feed a solution to you.
BTW : The SCJD is worth the money and time ONLY if you do the assignment yourself Otherwise it is just another piece of paper.
