I cleared SCJP with 91% . Thanks first of all to Krishna for the amazing site he is managing from last few years. Believe me i was so Impressed with the site that whenever a person asks me about starting with JAVA,i used to tell them few points that i followed and get the success.
Set the target for yourself ,like when you want to give test?,i think 2 months are sufficient.
1)Start with the Book Keithy Sierra . 2) Join javabeat.net ,Join the forum, Explore this site daily lots and lots of excellent material and Information is here.Mocks available are very helpful around 90% Questions came directly from Mocks.
People participating in forums are very Talented.I think Its the Best site In India. I joined It few months back and learned new concepts and technologies.
About the Exam:Well exam was not so tough as i thought it would be .Out of 61 Questins around 15 were multiple choice based. Questions were from each and every part. I think Collections ,Threads and Exception Handling are few topics to concentrate . There were few Qestions on String and String Buffer quite easy one.Few Questions were output based ,that is you have to write the output(there were no Options).2 to 3 Qn on Garbage collection.
Well thats the whole Journey. I am preparing for SCWCD now.
