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.
Hi all, Thanks to great articles in JavaRanch, I passed the SCJP last week with 94%. I just want to give a note of thanks to all those who have shared their thoughts here to help others. As for my experience in the process, I would like to strongly emphasize the point that it is pretty easy to clear the exam with reasonable preparation. Here are my mock exam results to set yourself a benchmark. Final Exam : 94% Maha Anna's Exam : 90% Heller's Book : 70% Ramussen's Book : 70% Exam Cram : 80% I used the Ramussen book mostly, combined with the McGrawHill book. Both of them are really good. While Ramussen book is hard, McGrawHill is more towards the actual exam, maybe a bit more lenient. Concentrate on Threads, IO, AWT, and Fundamentals. Good Luck!
Hi, Thank you for your warm wishes. With the confidence from this exam's results, I also plan on taking up the SCWCD exam. I see that JavaRanch has already published mock exams and the like. Does anyone know how easy/tough it is? I don't see any books published for this exam. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sathya.
There is a "links" page in the SCWCD forum that tells you everything you need to know about the exam: http://www.javaranch.com/scwcdlinks.jsp I heard that the exam is somewhat (some say a lot) easier than SCJP2.

Thanks for the link. I already went through the links mentioned there and even found a few mock exams! Gives me a bit of a confidence when you say that it is easier than SCJP2!! Sathya.
