I cleared SCJP today with 98%. Feeling very excited about it. I made one mistake in Threads.

Thanks to javaranch, K&B book , marcus green mock exams and Dan Chisolm exams.

I feel K&B and marcus green mock exams are more than enough for getting a good score.

Hi amit,
I would have prepared for SCJP for 2 months. I used K&B book for preparation. I think that book is sufficient for the exam. I first read the whole K&B book once and solved all the self-test. I was not confident at that time. SO I revised the book again until I understood the concepts.
Corey's SCJP tipline is a good reference material for many concepts. I worked out lot of code. Then I started taking mock exam from Dan chisolm. Since I didn't have enough time I took only the comprehensive tests.

Other than that some of the mocks that are very helpful are

Master Exam (This i took one day before the exam. It helped me a lot)
Marcus green - 3 mock exam
Tests from Javaprepare web site
Poddar's Questions (for equals)
Sreenivasa Kumar Majji's Questions

I feel the first two mock exams I mentioned are good enough. But solving others will give you some confidence.
Before the exam I went through the two minute drill and the exam watch in K&B.

Work out lots of code. Take mock exams constantly. If you understand the concepts you are ready to take the exam.

I feel the exam was not very tough.It is easier than Dan's and comparable to Marcus green's exams.

Hope this helps

Good luck

All the mock exams are available in this web site


This is Corey's tipline


By writing code i meant both. You can use a mock exam as a learning process. Just cut paste the code and view the results. You can also write simple code and work it out.

This helps a lot
