I just cleared the SCJP2 exam today with 92%. Yes, without this Site, i am not sure what my score would have been. I was preparing for certification from January before i discovered this site in Mid-febraury. Before that, my studies were not that focused, after coming here, i kind
of got the concepts more quickly going through past questions, asking questions about the quesions which i am not clear about etc. I did not do a lot of Mock tests and kind of panicked when somebody sent a mail yesterday that we need to do a lot of mock tests. Might have been good but i just didn't have time to do that.
May God bless the creators, moderators and others who make this site so useful :-). In specific, i would like to thank Jim, Tony and Maha Anna for answering my questions. This is a great way of learning especially when people are so helpful. Can we use this site once we start working in Java or may be we should use Java in general?

Congrats Anju! Good score! Can you tell us which books have you referred for Java certification? Just curious to know, did you have C/C++ work experience or programming background before learning Java?

Simon Roberts & Philip Heller - Java2 certification guide
Bill Brogden - Java2 Exam cram book
Barry Boone - Java 1.1 Exam certification.
I have 3 years of experience in C. I taught myself C++ and cleared a couple of interviews, but never really worked on it as part of job.
I agree. Here's the link:
