Hello Everyone,
I like to know what are the best resources and books available for the developer certification.
Does anyone has a list that would help me.
Thanks.

Dev -
The best book in my opinion is the one that is typically referred to on this forum as the "Max book".
It is "The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam with J2SE 1.4" by Mehran Habibi and Terry Camerlengo
Max is Mehran's nickname, and he often visits and answers questions on this forum. The book is awesome.
You can look at all book reviews for this exam at the Java Ranch Bunkhouse.
Also look at the reviews of other books related to this exam -
Exam Cram 2 Java Developer by Alain Trottier
Kathy Sierra is an author on one other one that covers both the programmer and developer exam, but the coverage in this book is very high level for the developer exam.
Good luck, and in my opinion the Max book is a *MUST HAVE*.
