Hi Guys, If someone can suggest me a good book/site from where i could prepare for SCJP. To give a little idea about myself/my java knowledge : I have self learnt core java... so it has not been very systematic. My sources while learning were Complete Reference JAVA 2 --and-- Core Java Volume-1.
As far as I have seen, this IS the best site on the web to study for the SCJP! Welcome.

Thanks Rob, , for the welcome. But I would really appreciate if someone could suggest me as to how to transform my java knowledge (whatever little i have) into a good career proposition. Thanks again, Regards, Mehul K. Sanghvi

Ah, well that's a broader issue ;P The job market is really soft all over. But I'm sure it will pick up in time, so learning as much as you can now will prepare you for that time. There are many different ways of studying for the SCJP. Usually, people do the following 1) Buy a study book or two. There are many good suggestions, but the most popular is probably Complete Java 2 Certification, by Roberts, Heller, and Ernest. Everyone just calls it RHE around here. 2) Take lots of practice tests. There are many links on this site to practice tests. There's the java rules roundup, which tests your understanding of basic java syntax. 3) When you get a test question wrong, post a question about it here. Or search this forum for the answer; chances are someone has already asked the same question. 4) WRITE LOTS OF JAVA CODE! You can only learn programming by programming, so take a little time each day to write sample code to go over the issues you are not clear about. That's pretty much the standard routine, but other people may have a different strategy. Good luck!
I have same problem. But now I am really confused, it seems more java people got fired lately around me. I have basic knowledge for java, and I still love it. But I don't know if a certificate plus 2 years experience will help me. Or I just need to pursue other things? BTW, I heard Mrcus Green was just got fired...
