Hi,

A list of books you can find reading materials.

Furthermore, Frank Lu mentioned two books.

I can't tell you which book to get, but I'd recommend that you get one that covers Java 5.

Why? You don't have to do it in 1.5...

I have a book "The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam" but I don't really think it's worth it. Personally, I found it easier to write my own code than struggle through that book's example code...

And you can learn enough about RMI, Sockets, Synch etc from the online Sun tutorials (and this site)...

You have a good point. It's just my own decision to upgrade to Java 5 (1.5).

After the SCJP, I like the book "Effective Java" by Joshua Bloch. It is chock full of good coding patterns (even though it's an older book).
