Many thanks for all the information, guidance out here in Javaranch, though i haven't participated in the forum much but active visitor of SCJP forum. Many thanks to K & B for such a wonderful book
Well I have managed to score only 66%
Time taken for preparation : 1 month Study materials used : K & B , java spec , Dave Allens Notes (very handy especially if you travel long hour to work can use this )
To the SCJP 5.0 aspirants : concentrate more on generics / threads generics is not tough though but questions on the exam might seem confusing if not very thorough.
PS:- I am going to take a gamble with SCJP 5.0, I am going to resign my current job ( i was hired as java developer but working in c++ for past 8 months ) with about 4 years experience in J2EE i hope i will get a decent java job in the Pro Microsoft country (Hong Kong )
