I did my Sun Certification last year  and successfully cleared the exam . I am sharing you the materials that i referred to clear it . From my experience clearing the exam is not difficult you just need to mug up the dumps . But i wouldn’t recommend that as you wont get the basics concepts of Java . According to me just read the book KATHY SEIRRA 1.5 twice so that you would get the basic concepts in Java Programming and then go for the dumps . The dumps are so confusing that many questions would look alike but would be having different answers , go through dumps as much as you can . Out of 72 questions i got 71 correct answers out of which more than 60 questions where from these dumps provided below .
