Hi everybody,
I'm new to JavaRanch and thus not sure if this is the right forum to post my question (if not I apologize).
I've been programming Java for about two years (nothing to complex). Now I'm interested in getting certified. Is a month enough to prepare for the exam ? Which books should I read ?
Thx!

I think that's a good amount of time if you spen at least 3 hours a day.
And for a book:
Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)
Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates
and use the link here to give javaranch a kickback

I think its doable as long as you have the time to dedicate to it (like Paul mentioned). Definitely check out the book by Kathy and Bert - its EXCELLENT.
Make sure you take lots of mock exams (particularly the ones in Kathy and Bert's book -- Kathy is a co-developer of the actual exam, so the mock questions in their book are VERY CLOSE to the real thing.
Good luck!
