Which book is best for me.

Or

Any help will be greatly helpful.
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Tina,

According to me SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide

is best i guess..I have gone through it & am very much clear interms of concepts. If you have already cleared 1.4 then for advanced topics in this book are pretty good.

Because you are not a beginner anymore and the SCJP 5 Study Guide is specifically about the SCJP 5 exam (it covers exactly what you need to know for the exam), I'd say the SCJP 5 Study Guide would be a better choice.

Note that Java 5 has a number of new language features (generics, new for-loop syntax, autoboxing, enums, varargs, annotations, ...) you will have to learn some new things.
