Hi Guys,
I want to know ONE book to read for this certification. Now before you inundate me with "I am so lazy" tags,

I am asking this question after reading
http://www.coderanch.com/t/419080/Web-Services-Certification-SCDJWS/How-to-prepare-SCDJWS-from
http://www.coderanch.com/t/419137/Web-Services-Certification-SCDJWS/I-want-to-do-SCDJWSPlease
and most importantly a spate of links available at
http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScdjwsLinks

I will be mostly offline and I am looking at Paper Bound Books which will help me in preparing for this exam. For SCJP I had "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide" by Katherine Sierra (Author), Bert Bates (Author) and for SCJD I had a book titled "SCJD Exam with J2SE 5, Second Edition (Expert's Voice in Java) (Paperback)" by Andrew; Camerlengo, Terry Monkhouse (Author). I ended up reading a lot of online content towards the end of my certification. However, during the initial phases I found these books which have an exam oriented kinda preparation to be very useful. Does SCDJWS have a similar one-stop-shop (that covers almost everything) ?

I found a book at SCJDWS Book but apparently that book isnt available? Can someone suggest some books or tell me how the book I mentioned above is?

I also understand that J2EE Web Services (Paperback) by Richard Monson-Haefel (Author) book is great. But is this geared towards a certification preparation or is it more about webservices in general? I ask this because I have been working on webservices for a while but I would like to know if there is a book available which prepares you from a certification point of view.

Hi Kanan,

At present there are no certification book like 'SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide' available for this exam.

You need to refer to specifications and RMH book to prepare for certification.
