I'm going to take SCJP 6.0 exam in the mid of next month and after that if I pass, as I'm still in my uni second last sem, I'm willing my knowledge to expand in GUI part. I have searched through at amazon.com and book reviews here to get a good solid foundation book on GUI and got a bit confused about which one would be best for a java programmer but quite new for graphical era.
For you to guess my level, I have done some basic GUI programming and the books I've studied so far are:
Head First: Java (2nd Edition)
Java: How to Program (6th edition) - give up on half-way as too deep and lengthy explanation
and school works + some online tutorials
Can you please share your opinion about which book trail would be fast pace and best suited for me ?
