I am an Employee working in a reputed Organization. I entered the organization which has developed sophisticated products on java with advanced concepts like web services.I am a novice to java at the time i joined the company. By taking the help of senior collegues i decided to become profiency in java with in at least 3 to 6 months.For that to understand and become expert in java i chose the SUN Carrer path.
I started preparing java as follows.
1. read the java tutorial to get basic functionality and concepts. 2. start reading A Programers Guide to Java by khalid moghal to get concepts in a great deal. 3. I attempted tests in danchisom site in the study guide2 which people feel hardest than SCJP exam. 4. I identified my week areas by completed that study guide tests. 5. I started reading K&B book. I prefered to all this is the book for SCJP. I got in depth knowledge after finishing the K & B book. This book explains the areas where people often do mistakes and confuse in the exam. 6. I started attempting the mock tests from different sites which java ranchies provides.After i got confidence that i can pass the exam i tried to read again areas where i am making mistakes in the exam.I learned lot of solutions from this great site. 7. My last week journey as

I got 80% in both tests. 8. On the exam day i had a look at the khalid moghal book once to each chapter and gone through exam watch and two minute drill from k&B. Two minute drill is very important to see on the exam day.
