I already have two books on preparing for the scjp, but I need more information on collections. Where can I this?
Thanks

Which version of the SCJP exam are you taking? And which books have you already read?

This section on Collections from The Java Tutorial is updated for 5.0 (with generics).

This Collections chapter from Thinking in Java is for 1.4 (no generics).

In addition to the above links, I suggest using the API documentation to make your own diagram of the Collection and Map hierarchies. (Start at these interfaces and work your way down using the API lists of "all known subinterfaces" and "all known implementing classes.) This is a good exercise to get a feel for the relationships, and it also gives you a nice diagram to add to your study notes.
