I somehow cleared SCJP thankx to "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide" written by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
I am into 3d mobile game engine development using C,C++. So I hardly used Java . But this book helped me not only to prepare for the exam but also taught me a great deal of complex chapters relating Java. The knowledge gained from this book is helping me while porting the game engine on Android platform.
I really like the way this book has been written. So impressed with the authors, I bought "Head First Servlet and JSP" for SCWCD preparations. Both these books have increased my curiosity towards this powerful language.
i am also studying for SCJP 5.
Please give me some tips about to go for SCJP 5.
which all mock exams have you gone through before going for SCJP exam?

I read the book and practiced the code snippets. As for mock exam, I didnt give any, because misfortunately I lost the accompanying CD .
As for chapter-wise tips I will recommend you to read Threads,Generics as much as possible,as they are confusing at times.
