I am a new comer to this forum. I have read some of the threads here and feel this is a good starting point. I haven't seen many responses of recent dates. I am going to prepare for the SCJP cert and I need some adice on how to start,. I have 1 year of java from college work and I am currently working in Java (core java though). I would appreciate some advice on best SCJP preparation books, which I plan to buy. I need some advice on tips and on if any topics are ommitted from the current SCJP curriculum. Where can I get the curriculum for the SCJP? How long, on average, does one need to prepare comfortably enough and write the exam??? I need as much help as I can get.

Thanks a lot...

Hi Palu -

The best book for SCJP1.4 is the book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. Its a little light on Collections and Threads but otherwise covers everything well.

I'm not sure if they have released a 1.5 version yet - if not then its probably on the way soon.

Other than that the reading the posts in this forum are really good - and there are lots of mock exams at http://www.javaranch.com/mock.jsp

Might pay to check out Marcus Green's website as well....

Hope that helps.

http://www.wileydreamtech.com/display.asp?isbn=81-7722-316-X&cat=Certification&subcat=Java&author=Katherine%20Sierra,%20Bert%20Bates

All these are the same book. The ISBN of the Indian Edition is the same on both the indian sites. And the Amazon edition is the US edition.
