Hi Vamsi,

Once you become familiar with all the SCJP topics in the K&B book you can go for JLS as an additional information. The K&B book is as good as JLS. I would rather say K&B abridged is JLS. So for the exam one can be confortable with K&B and some mock exams.
Try the following places for some tips and tricks on SCJP related topics. Hope this should be useful. This link infact refers to JLS but reading this link will be more than enough to go for JLS.

Thanks alot jothi,
But the JLS is containing grammers, CFG and mainly discussing about compiler related information. Thats why i am not able to understand that.

The JLS is the language specification, it is an attempt to formally define how the language ought to work. It is "the argument settler" of documents. I wouldn't worry too much about it if you find it hard to understand. You should be able to do almost all your learning from other sources that are aimed at explaining the concepts rather than defining them (a subtle and important difference).
