Hi!! Friends,
I am planning to give my SCJP 2 1.4 exam. I have hitherto studied from the Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide.
Can you please guide me as to which book I should use next to strengthen my concepts.
Thanks,
Ashwin Philar

do {
Reread the book you have together with the Java Language Specification;
Find the Java 1.4 documentation and find the new features section which explains assertions;
Take some of Dan Chisholm's Mock Exams;
} while(!feelConfident());
-Barry (possibly unreached);
Corrected compilation error!

Thanks Barry,
But this book does not have extensive questions coverage...
I need something that'll contain lotsa exam like questions....
Thanks again,
Ashwin

Ashwin,
My mock exam has nearly 200 questions and most of the answers have detailed explanations. I think that the single topic exams are particularly useful as you work through any study guide chapter-by-chapter.

JavaRanch has a link for mock exams and a lot of FAQs.
Best of luck.
