Just wondrin...why there are only few reviewer I can see for SJCD exam? Like Whizlabs dont have offering for that...Unlike the SJCP, SCWCD(J2EE), SCBCD,SCEA etc...

Is not it so popular or in demand now a days? or it just because optional? thanks..

"few reviewer I can see for SJCD exam?"

I don't understand what you mean?

what is a reviewer? In what sense? What are they reviewing, the actual assignment, some third party tool, some third party assignment?

I am confused.

hi Nelson:
If you meant products, like whizlab simulator for SCJP, SCWCD...etc
That is because there is no formula to succeed in SCJD. It is not like one book you can read, and then do the assignment. To learn and succeed in doing the assignment, you must have good programing knowledge using java. One will use all the knowledg gained through one's experience. There are some books out there, but they are written for tips, not to start from scratch.

Hi Nelson,

It's probably because for the SCJD you do need a real person to review any sample assignment they give you. This takes time and costs money.

Contrast this with SCJP / SCBCD / SCWCD where it is all multi choice exams, so a program can evaluate your answers to test questions, and provide correct answers / hints.
