Well, I have no idea about programming and really want to be SCJP. I have following study materials are the enough for a beginner:
1- SCJP java 2 platform by Robert Barr (video trainning CBT)
2- SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
3- The Java Tutorial 5.0 from Sun.

Your java platform should be latest. K & B book of java 5 is enough with addition to sun tutorial. So you have enough material as I think.

I think K & B book is enough. A book with plenty of explanation for every concept.

umm... So if i study the Basic (Getting Started, Learning the Java Language
Essential, Java Classes, Collections, Deployment) from Sun tutorial and then study the K&B book is that a solid foundation for beginner.

And my target is to give exam 310-055 which is Java 5 platform...

I'm confused here:
Which Sun Java tutorial should I use:
1- The Java Tutorial updated for 5.0
2- The Java Tutorial for 6.0

And which JDK should is use for preaparing for exam.
