Ordered the certification books

I've finally ordered the certification books that I mentioned in a previous post (SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055): Study Guide Exam 310-055 and Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051): Study Guide Exam 310-051).

It is my personal goal to have taken both certifications before the end of April. I was tempted to also get the Certification Press book about Sun Certified Business Components Developer, but it got such bad reviews on Amazon that I didn't dare to get it. Unfortunately it seem to be the only study guide for Business Components Development.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the books getting here so that I can get started!

I' m interested what you think about the books.

Do plan to make the certification, too?
I'd would be interested about your comments, about the certification, too.

Yes, my goal is to do the certification as well. I've been at bit hesitant about the certification as I've almost developing software with Java for the past eight years. However, it does add that extra bit of credibility when bidding for projects and working with clients.

To my surprise the books are not just focusing on passing the certification but also in-depth practical information about the important language and enterprise concepts. I haven’t gone too far in the books, but so far I’m happy.
