I finally decided to take the exam and now what a relief i passed. I was aiming a higher score but i'm satisfied with 90%
I always appreciated people sharing their experience after the exam. It helps get motivated and define the right path to reach your goal i.e SCJP
My experience with programming comes from c/c++. it took me 2 months to prepare and i believe you can do it in less than 2 months.
I used the following to prepare:
1- Mughal's Book to start.
2- JLS/API For reference
3- Mock exams: JWhiz 1.4, Marcus, Valentin, Dan
4- Velmurugan Periasamy's Notes
5- Articles (in JavaRanchNews, IBM, SUN ...)
6- Coding, Coding, and Coding
7- Be an ACTIVE member in the forum.
The last point helped me a lot. While trying to find solution to the questions, i was always revising and learning a lot.
I want to thank all the Ranchers, those who answered my questions and all those who are working hard to keep this site alive
Thank you All.
What do you guys think i should do next: SCWCD,SCJD,XML,ORACLE ...
I appreciate your advice.
