This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, About me, I have failed 4 certification till now including SCJP.. now I am feeling very hard to give SCJP once again... but can't give other Sun exams without SCJP..except SCEA.. should I try for SCEA... or should I go for SCJP without caring about score... and then SCJD or SCWCD or SCBCD...
Rathi, Why don't you start with SCJA. This is even easier than SCJP. Once you pass this exam you will get some energy and confidence. After that you can go for SCJP. Going for directly SCEA may be a risky thing. However, it's not impossible. But the proper series for you will be SCJA -SCJP -SCWCD -SCBCD and then SCEA.
Wish you good luck.

Thanks everybody.. I will not go for SCEA... I don't want to fail one more exam ..
I am sure that I can clear SCJP but not confident about score.. company is paying for certification... don't enjoy when I solve mock or read material of SCJP.. should I give it without caring about score...
Either way you should take any practice exams you can find before attempting the actual exam. Once you can pass most of the practice exams available then you are ready to take the exam.
The SCJP has many sources of free or cheap exam questions on the internet. I really enjoyed the question of the day(I forget from where). Every day a question was emailed to me, I answer it as soon as I arrived at work. Easy quick painless, no 2 hour committment. I really hate the sybex books(black book), I was suckered twice into buying them.
SCEA - Granted you don't need to "Know" java to pass the SCEA, but many of the questions rely on information only gained through the use of java.

Thanks a lot everybody. Now I will go for SCJP with complete preparation, whether it takes 4-5 months. Thanks again.
