"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would use the Sybex book - it contains a disk that simulates the software that is used by Sun in the exam:

I'd suggest  the book by Kathy Siera and Bert Bates.

Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)


Its so much fun reading this book. It explains everything in a nice humourous way. written by developers of SCJP exam it covers everything in the exam. Even the mock exam difficulty is very close to the real exam difficulty.

hi  thomas908
thanks for your suggestion. I was waiting for other suggestions... Have u personnally used this book?

>> Have u personnally used this book?

yes, i cleared the exam using this book.
There is another good book by Khalid Mughal. It contains a little more information than needed for the exam and is written in a pretty serious tone unlike the book by Kathy and Bert which is full of humour.

If u r looking for everything to the point or reference sort of book go for Khalid Mughals book but if u want to enjoy your java exam preperation and have fun go for the book by  Kathy and Bert.
