well i took my scja about a fortnight ago. and it was a bad expereince . i dont know if people flunk in it but i did. i mean i did not not clear the test.
But ya i'll take it again.
So i wanted to know how much should i actually prepare before going for it again. (ya i did not study much coz my college exams were round the corner).
Also a friend suggested i should go for the scjp coz programming makes more sense to me than these conceptual ques asked in scja.

So please help me... im really apprehensive about takin scja again .

Hi Priyanka,

It's alright. Don't feel bad and don't give up. Can you share your exam experience here. Also, tell us the way you prepared for the exam, what material you used, how many days you worked for the same. If you plan and give another attempt, you will succeed. Also, join google group for SCJA and most importantly, be active here.

Firstly I did not expect the exam to be like this. I seriously thought it would be a very very general exam (in my dictionary) . I found the questions were a bit too conceptual. Obviously they were like either you know them or you dont. Not like anything related to programming.

As far as the preparation goes. I did not study much. I am guilty there.
So now i wanted to know how i should be studying.

Also should I prepare for scja or try for scjp??

I think you should give a serious attempt to SCJA again.
