I recently passed my SCJP. Sure the certification reinforces the parameters of the language well, but all i made during the time were test programs. So any tips/books you guys recommend that can give me a kick start in making some real programs? Thanks.

As for going on, there isn't just one "on" to go towards...
Can you find some external basis for choice? What job do you want, what program do you have a burning desire to see working, etc...
I got a job, and that directed what I learned about next. It's useful to have a goal. You can just pick something you would like to implement, you can look at what's being asked for in the want ads.
Cheers,
Bret

there is too much to learn on top of SCJP. if you start from scratch, you may find a SCJP is almost nothing to start doing real programming. i think you will find SCWCD, SCEA are all very helpful, you can even try some ibm, oracle stuff. just my 2 cents.

i have another point to make. in real programming, project starts with design and analysis, through development, end with testing. you may also want to follow through the progress.
