Hi all,
I am currently preparing for the SCMAD exam (taking it on Feb. 24). During my SCJP preparation, I found some of the exam notes prepared by the patrons of JavaRanch to be extremely useful.
So here's my humble attempt towards paying back the JavaRanch community.
http://www.cssathya.com/tutorials/java/certification/scmad/
I will be constantly updating the chapters in this page. Please let me know if you find errors so that I can fix them.

I wouldn't be so humble. It looks like a great start to me!

hi Sathya,
you are still working hard to consolidate exam notes right? I only see one pdf for RMS right now.
I really appreciate your effort ......

Hi,
As you have noticed, it is a work in progress, which hopefully will be completed around Feb. 16 (my target date for first revision).
I have currently added 2 chapters.
6. RMS
11. WMA
Please keep checking back for the next few days for more topics. Hopefully it will be one per day.

Very good!
I'm currently making some mapping and quick reviews too.
I hope that'll be available in few days.
I'm trying to make some mock questions too.
Later (in one day or two) I'll post something for everyone rate.
Thank you!

Hi,
I have added one more chapter - chapter 10 - MMAPI 1.1. Please let me know if you find any errors or if you have any suggestions.
Shoaib:

If you have cut & pasted the link to your PDF directly on a browser, you will only get a redirect page, which is probably what happened here. I had to have this mechanism so that auto-downloaders cannot be used to download the files.
Please use this link to download the files.

As an addendum to the previous post, right-click and save on the PDF does not work. You have to click it (it will open the file in IE itself) and just save from Acrobat.
I will try to work out the kinks in the filter I wrote soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Sathya!
On your notes chapter 10 you wrote:

But the parameter duration isn't the duration in milliseconds...???
I think that's a mistaje here...
Thank you!

Hi all,
I have added another chapter 4 - Networking to the web page.
Please click on the Adobe icon to open the file in the browser and use the "save button" inside the Adobe plug-in to save the file. Do not right-click and save. It won't work.
Thanks again for all the feedback.
I have added an "Addendum" and "Errata" section in the webpage. Please check that regularly.

When the Acrobat Reader opens up the browser window, click on Diskette icon of Acrobat (top left corner) below URL address.
This will allow the file to be saved as pdf file.
Best wishes

Hi Sathya;
I was looking your Exam Notes and saw that the number of questions in the "Introduction" topic is set to 160. I took the exam yesterday and the correct number of questions is 169.
