Tanuja, Welcome to Javaranch One week is definitely not enough in my opinion. You should consider postponing your exam and take some time to study. Reading a book and feeling that you know how Java works is one thing. Knowing how to program in Java is another thing and requires experience. A basic parallel could be that you know what is needed to build a house (walls, roof, ...) but you don't actually know how to build it (unless you practice first).
I'm moving this thread to the study. Please, read the Javaranch Naming Policy and change your publicly displayed name to comply with our unique rule. Thank you for your cooperation. [ March 07, 2002: Message edited by: Valentin Crettaz ]
How long have you been writing java programs? It's best to take the test after you've had a few months of experience actually writing many small sample programs to really learn how java works. You can't really learn to program java just by reading about it. You have to actually do it.
How to study? JavaRanch, JavaRanch, and more JavaRanch You learn a lot by asking questions here and even more by replying to posts, chances are if you have some misconceptions about facts or detail people will quickly correct you on that here IMHO, I would say put the brakes on taking that SCJP Exam.
