Java Certification

When we updated the core Java Tutorial to JDK 6, we included a page designed to help those who are studying for Java Certification.
This study guide calls out which portions of the tutorial are relevant to the testing objectives -- it is by no means comprehensive. We still sometimes receive questions on the tutorial feedback alias asking how to prepare for the Java Programmer Certification test.
The book strongly recommended by our Java instructors and course developers is the Complete
Java 2 Certification Study Guide by Philip Heller.

As far as I know, most of the Indian students follow [b]SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055), written by Sierra & Bates.[/b] I heard from some students and budding professionals, who passed the exam, that it is a great book and very useful for preparation.

Yes, I completely agree with royaljacob. Having appeared for the examination myself using this book as my textbook, I can vouch for this book. It's the best book for SCJP certification in my opinion.
The only problem is that it's not yet been updated for the SCJP6 exam.

Here is a link to the book -
