Hi, All,
I passed SCJP 1.4 with a score of 90, today. I really want to thank JavaRanch communicty, which is quite informative, and members here just love to share with others their widsom and friendness.
I use a very popular approach to prepare for my exam. K&B, and Dan's questions. It took me one month and half to prepare for this. My expereicne is to read K&B over and over, particular on those of your weak points. and ensure that you understand answers for each question of all the self-test. My experience is I can almost recite the answers in the final day. I find it practicable to review all the two-minuts drills, and self-tests within two hours.
I goes to Dan's questions till I feel quite comfortable with the contents in the K&B. Some of the Dan's questions are very weird, and likely not found in the real test, I skipped them with no expection of obtaining a perfect score but rather a satisfactory score at soon as possible. Dan's questions are quite supplementary, if you goes through it, and back to K&B, you found that everything goes easy.
I had thought that to answer all 61 questions in 2 hours may be challenging. In fact, it is far from true. I took one hour to finishall. And next hour reviewing. So my expereince is try to go through K&B self-test, and Dan's questions as often as you can.
That's it. Good luck to all.

It takes me about one month and half, and each day, I spent 5 or six hours. THe output is not a top scor

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
