Could someone give me some advice on the best book for me:
-3/4 years java experience(j2se, j2ee)
-can only afford one book(poor student)!
-planning on implementing a j2me based dissertation for my final year uni project.
-have no experience with j2me!
i.e. something that starts from scratch, but written for someone that is already familiar with java, but goes into enough detail to help with a final year project.
any ideas?
and help would be very much appreciated!
Rowan.

rowan . you can buy "teach yourself j2me in 21 days " by SAMS . Its not expensive . Unfortunately this is the only book available in india and it would cost around Rs 270/-
I,am sure you would find it usefull to start j2me from scratch.
You'll find some good tutorials on wireless.sun.com.
Do visit and download some good book chapters .

Hi Rowan,
I am the author of Core J2ME Technology and MIDP. There have been many good reviews written about my book, from experienced as well as new Java developers. Have a look at Amazon:
Core J2ME Technology and MIDP
Also, feel free to ask other readers here about their feedback on the book as well. I am sure a few readers are lurking around
With a little research, I'm sure you'll find the perfect book to meet your needs.
John

I really liked Learning Wireless Java. You may read my review of it here. It is getting some pretty good reviews on Amazon as well.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
