This book will definitely help you a lot. However, I suggest you try out other books, online tutorials, mock exams, Rancher's experiences and references etc., rather than just believing this book alone.

I passed the scjp6 with 87%, and i have a friend who passed the exam too with 88%, we both studied with kathy sierra books, I think is the best book in order to get the certification. In addition, we neither read any other papper, book, overview, etc. The kathy sierra is a good book for several reasons, first, you can get a self test at end each chapter, beyond, if you buy the book, it come with a cd that have two master exams, the difficulty of the questions in both exams are similarity of the real exam. Finally, we take several mock exams, specifically, mock exams of whizlab. I think, with mock exams and kathy sierra book you will be able to take the exam. good lucky.

From what our readers tell us, the exam is not that formidable after working through our work. :-)
Any many have reported excellent results.

Here are some rough guidelines -- repeated elsewhere as well.
I suggest you familiarize yourself with the exam objectives first (Appendix B).
Then read up on topics you know the least about (there are references from the exam objectives to the topics in the book), and reinforce these by doing the review questions for these topics.
As you get to the topics that (you think) you know a lot about, start with the review questions first to gauge how much you know.
Finally try the mock exam -- and some more mock exams from the net -- until you are confident.
IMHO, without practicing answering the review questions, it is very hard to clear the exam.
Good luck!
