Hi all, Finally, after month long trepidation, I passed SCJP 1.4 with 86%. Thanks to all of greenhorns here in Javaranch. I referred the following four books and attendted almost all mock exams available in the web. The one provided by Dan was very..very..very... useful. Apart from the questions on each topic, the explanation given for each quesion under answer section was embedded with many details. The exam questions were not that difficult as Dan's. (I presume Dan is not in Sun's question setters panel ). 1) Kathy & Berts - Java Certification 310-035 Book. - Greatly helpful. Thanks to the authors and publishers for making the contents of CD ROM(e-book) copyable to hard disk. 2) Java Certification 2- Second Edition by Simon Robers. 3) Mike Mayer's Passport to Java Certification. 4) Java certification by Brian Bagnal. (Inner Class chapter was fine) Although all of the above book were teaching the syllabus for the exam, each book highlighted some essestial unknown facts. For example, Mike Myers' passport to certification highligted the return values for max,min...etc..for all inputs like NaN, Positive Infinity, Negative Infinity. If time permits, for anyone appearing for the exam, pls. refer more than one book. Thank you all again. SAMY., [ June 08, 2003: Message edited by: Samy Venkat ]
