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.
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. Mike
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.
