Hello All, I am so excited that a friend of mine told me about this site. I am a SCJP2 and I am now going to go on to the SCJD. I hope I am ready. My background is as a C++ programmer, however I have had some experience with using Java on the client side for the GUI. I figure the best way to learn the Language is to use it. I am looking forward to learning some different aspects of the language. I am sure this site will be a valuable resource with my persuit of this next level of certification.
Welcome Joe, You certainly came to the right place if you want to pass the Developer's cert. Without JavaRanch I scored 86% on the Programmer's test; with JavaRanch I scored 154/155 on the Developer's. There is lots of Java experience here and everyone is more than willing to share it. Good luck on what was a very fulfilling and learning experience for me. Michael Morris
