Hi Mohamed,
I have noticed that this question is the first post by most newcommers.
RHE is an acronym (First alphabet of the authors of the book "The complete Java2 Certification study guide" -->the first book on top left of this page.) This book is considered to be the bible for guys trying to become scjp.
I am sure you will also be chanting RHE pretty soon.
By the way if you browse the posts from last month you will notice that all the above authors RHE have visited this saloon. So we are all blessed
Join the gang.....

I have the same book. May help you pass SCJP exam if you memorise the book. But wont teach you java. What use is a SCJP if he cant do anything useful. Might I also remind you guys of a new rule passed by the US congress this year. It is legal for an employer to murder an employee if he obtains employment under false pretences . That means if he finds out you aint any good with java even if you are a SJCP he is perfectly entitled to gun you down.
Good luck guys(dishom , dishom)

Mary Chaddi,
This is probably not the best place to discuss employment related issues., for that matter anything that is not related to Java. I urge you not to post inappropriate topics/comments in this discussion forum.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Hi Mohamed, welcome to this site!
In addition to the RHE, you might consider to have a look at
"A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification" by by Khalid Azim Mughal, Rolf Rasmussen. It's considered to be a very thorough book. And its mock exam is one of the most difficult.
You'll find a list of good books at:
Since you're new to this site, let me recommend that you skim quickly through pages referred to at the top of:
It is going to save you a lot of time.
Also, have a look at:
Hope this helps.
Have a good day.
