First learn Java and learn it well.
Don't bother trying to cram for the exam until you know the language well, it won't teach you much of anything (cramming never will).

Hi Himani,
welcome to javaranch!

I can suggest Head First Java and Thinking in Java

Before you buy anything, try to go to a bookstore or a library and check if those books are not too complicated for you.

U r right there's no point in cramming, and i am too bad at it. need to grasp the basic fundamentals and understand logic. I am working as a programmer in an MNc with 1yr experience so have a fair idea of OOPs. But JAVa is new for me. Read chapter2 of Head First Java that seemed very basic level. What do u sugest which book should i start off with.

Hi

I visited this forum but things seem to complicated as of now. i am yet to begin with JAVa. May be after 20-25days ll be able to catch up with this forum. one of my friends suggested me a book by Khalid Mughal. have u read that. Is that book right for me? I am quite clear with OOPs concept n working as a software engineer with an MNc in india.

Thinking in Java is available as a free download from the net. Google for it.

As an aside, it definitely took me much more than a year to fully grasp the power of OO.
