Am in my final year of graduation and have learnt basics of java as under my university curriculum. I intend giving OCJP6 exam by this aug-sept.. Just wanted to know that is it fine if I directly start with SCJP 6 book by Bert Bates and Kathy Sierra or do I go through their book "Head First Java" thoroughly before I start preparing for OCJP 6 ??? Any other preparatory guidance and tips is welcome as well.. Thanks...
Reading two references is better than reading just one. So go ahead and read HF Java first, then move on to K&B. HF Java is quite a useful book which goes at an easy pace, and gives you a slightly different and fun take on Java. Well worth reading in my opinion.

Thanks Faraz.. I guess that a parallel reference to Head First Java will do good eventually ..
