Is your intent just to pass the exam and add 5 letters to your resume or to really understand the J2ME environment?

If the former, you can probably cram for a month or so (2-3 hours a day) and clear the exam with decent score, although that's not in the spirit of the exam.

If the latter, it would probably be 2-3 months (2-3 hours a day) with some time for writing some applications in various aspects and understanding how they work.

SCMAD (or any ther SC exam for that matter) is intended to be a test of how well you understand the topic and not how quickly you can cram for the exam.

Hope you get time to do the latter!

Hey shashindra, Just don't do the exam with the intention of adding five letter to your name.
