I can only assume you were impatient for an answer?
Well, the ranch is open 24 hours / day, but I gotta sleep man! Your first post came in after midnight where I live!
Anyway, I do think a good book is a good idea, depending on which exam you're taking, the Mughal book is very good for the 1.4 exam. Its style is different than ours, it's more a complete reference book, and while our book does cover some Java basics, it's really focused on being a certification guide.
If you read the posts of the successful candidates, you'll see that most of them advise that you writee a lot of little Java programs to test for yourself what you're studying. I TOTALLY agree with this advise - we probably wrote over 500 little programs as we were writing our book.
We also recommend that you make flash cards, and take them with you everywhere you go. The act of making them helps you study, and then the act of studying them helps again.
Finally, we think it's great to participate on this forum - it's amazing how much you'll learn when you step up to answer someone else's question.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Hey sunil. I am also preparing for the exam. i have 1.5 years of experience in J2EE, Core JAVA, EJB and Java Card. I find Mughal to be a good book but there are some things in mughal which are wrong like declaration of CharStack. Try doing it...it won't work...take care man and all the best

Thanks Amod for sharing information with me. And all the best for your exam.
Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability.
