Hello guys, I passed SCJP 5.0 last week and want to SCJA soon. I need help preparing for the exam. First of all, how to prepare for the exam? Can anybody tell me which book and study material should I follow. Secondly, how long should I prepare before appearing to the exam.
If you're already SCJP certified, the Java syntax sections will be a breeze. However, the syntax stuff is really a small part of the exam. The biggest part of the exam is demonstrating a well rounded knowledge of all Java based technologies, from Midlets to Servlets, from profiles to JNDI. The SCJA really needs to be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of when and where to use Java technologies, as opposed to simply knowing how to code them
If you are SCJP 1.5 then forget SCJA. Sun developed SCJA as an entry level certification targeted at non-programmers and non-developers. Move on up to one of the other certifications. [ December 10, 2006: Message edited by: Barry Gaunt ]
