I'm preparing for the SCPJ. I have both KB's book and "A Programmer's Guide To Java Certification" by Khalid Mughal and Rolf Rasmussen in hand, which book I should use? or both? Thanks a lot!

Personally, I used Mughal and Rasmussen and thought it was excellent. However, I have heard nothing but good things about the K&B book, as well. The only thing about M&R is that it is a bit dry - I'm not sure how K&B compares in that respect. If you're going to read one straight through, I'd suggest starting with K&B and use M&R to answer any outstanding questions you might have.

The M&R book has more detail and is more difficult to read. If you are new to Java, I will say start with the K&B book first.
