Hello all, I've just begun studying for Java programmer certification. The thing is I do not use java in my day-to-day work(VB-SQL-Vantive) so the only Java I do at the moment is in my spare time studying. I have done some servlet work about a year ago and have been on the Sun Java Programmers course. I am working my way through The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide by Simon Roberts and spend about an hour a day studying. I want to get certification before Christmas.Is this possible? Can anybody advise on how to approach my studing? I want to move into a Java role in the future but would like to get certification first.
