I've registered the Beta exam yesterday. But I knew little about the SCJD exam. Does GUI has to be written using Swing? And what books should I read related to design pattern?
BTW, although Google search is powerful, I think it will be more convenient if user can specify which forcum the search will be within, just as before.

Cindy,
The current exam requirements state:
Only componets from the Java Foundation Classes(Swing components) should be used.

As far as what the requirements will be for the beta exam I am not sure.
A good book on design patterns is "Design Patterns Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software" by Gamma, Helm, Johnson and Vlissides. Addison-Wesley is the publisher. Also good is searching this forum. Popular patterns used are Factory, Facade and MVC.

What is the beta test? Is it a new rev of the SCJD?

Mike, Thanks for your reply. I'm now trying to catch up some pattern knowledge.
Erick, I think you already know that the Beta link is no longer there any more. Even I registered, I haven't received any confirmation yet.
