This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I passed SCBCD (310-091) exam yesterday. The exam is really tricky but with the right preparation you will pass. I made a mistake of purchasing a voucher early and never got time to read because of work pressure then in the last 2 months I had to do a lot of reading so as to write before the voucher expired. I used O'Reilly's book, tried a lot of examples and used Glassfish App server. I urge those who want to write to practice a lot because you understand the concepts better. I also relied on the SPEC (boring to read but MUST read). I found the exam quite challenging but the time allocation is good. There is plenty of time so you are not under pressure when you sit for the exam. Also I think the key thing is NOT only to pass the exam but to understand the concepts and be able to apply them given a problem in a work situation. Thanks to all the ranchers and those who post their studying experience. It gave me confidence that I can DO IT. [ October 15, 2008: Message edited by: Patrick Mugabe ]
