This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
an advice -by Kathy �the cowgirl�- to drink too much water before entering the exam was not a proper advice. Thank you very much Java Ranch staff, your site helped me a lot ; tips, traps, mock exams, discussion threads, studies, advices... My humble advice: Don�t spend too much time reading books, read just one good book for SCJP 1.4 exam preparation, then turn to the mock exams. Also I believe that three resources are enough to give you the confidence to enter the exam (Marcus Green, Dan Chisholm, JQ+). Leave Dan Chisholm�s exams to the last otherwise you may get despaired, review Dan�s exams that are classified by topics and read the questions' remarks carfully. The real exam will be much easier.
I am so happy! Thanks God. [ March 10, 2003: Message edited by: Ahmad El-Tawbah ]
Ahmad - Congrats !! I don't think the cowgirl meant to say 'drink too much water', that COULD cause problems. On the other hand, being 'properly hydrated' helps your brain work better, AND (for you outdoorsy types), keeps you warmer in cold weather! - Bert

Originally posted by Ahmad El-Tawbah: See you either in SCJD or SCWCD forum, as still I did not decide, can you help me for that?
Well, if you're asking what exam you should do next, I think it depends on what kind of development you're doing. If you're doing any web-component development, SCWCD is a good next step, as it's another multiple-choice exam. On the other hand, if you're trying to showcase your programming ability, I think SCJD is probably more what you're looking for. Your goal's probably the best way to determine what route to go.
