This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Dear Ranchers, I owe my success to all of you. though i never wrote a message at this place but still contributed a lot in my success. its really a wonderful place full of enthusiastic ppl willing to help others. an hour back i appeared for my first certification exam - scjp and got 91%. its a great feeling. i had 4 months java experience.. followed the advice at this place and prepared thru Kahlid Mughal, Marcus Greeen Exams , J@Whiz along with some quick articles/tutorials on topics like Threads/IO/Inner Classes. Khalid is a great book. Marcus exams are the best free mock exam. I got 94% in them. J@Whiz helped me immensely specially in topics like Threads and IO, i got 85% in 11 practice tests. Exam was tough but i could keep my cool and patience and finally came out of the center with smile on my face. Once again thanku all for your contribution in my success. I will be more than happy to give back by contributing at this place. Please feel free to shoot out your queries and i promise to try my best to help you out. Best of luck to all of you neil
Congrats neil. What did you decide about your second IT Certification? To others as well : All those who have passed SCJP, which certification is taken after this? Can we have a poll on this? I am sure it will many of us. Regards sudeepa
I think it depends on your career path,i think one should not just take a cert exam for the sake of the cert .If you are a programmer who is involved in web development you might want to get your SCWCD to separate you from web page authors. Or database related technologies certs ?!
Hi.. Great Score. Could u share your experience of giving the SCJP exam I mean what were your resources..Which Mocks helped u the most At present I am referring RHE and solving JQ+ tests Do u think these 2 will help me to pass the exam with good score? I am finding Threads Chp very difficult from RHE Kindly suggest me. Sonir
Congratulations !! I think, if you do like Java take the Developer Certification. Thats if you have any plan or want some advice. A really programming assignment exam is good and that Developer Certification.
