I cleared the SCJP 1.4 last saturday and scored 86%.
These are the tips which i would like to share with u all.
1. I felt that the exam was not difficult but was a bit tricky. So you have to concentrate and be cautious while reading the questions.
2. Take the mock exams as much as possible. I scored 80%-87% in the Marcus Green exams. Dan's mock exam is necessay. You have to take the exam atleast once. But the real exam is not as difficult as Dan's exam. I would like to thank Dan for the wonderful exam with elaborate explanations.
3. In order to prepare for the exam, I used
1.Complete Reference
2.Sun certified programmer for Java 2 study guide Syngress Media, Inc.
3.Certification guide by Simon Roberts.
I did not purchase any other mock exams or books.
4. Do not follow the notes uploaded in any of the websites blindly because some of these notes contains a lot of mistakes.
5. I used Javaranch discussion forum to the fullest extent. I would like to thank everyone who supported me in achieving this.
