Hi Everybody,
I am planning to take SCJP. How long will it take for one to prepare for the SCJP for a programmer having 2 yrs of experience in Java. Or Can anyone tell me how long it took for you to prepare yourself for the exam.
I also dont know where to start. Could somebody help me out with where I should get myself started and what are the list of materials (other than phillip heller book) that I should go through and practice. Also , what areas should be concentrated more.
Anyhelp will be greatly appreciated.

neways, welcome to javaranch Mohamed. 2 yrs experience in java. hmmm... I am giving my exam on 9th nov and I have 1 yr exp. I have been preparing gradually since almost 3 months in between my work. If you just wanna pass - I'd say 2 weeks is enough. You wanna be in the elite 95% group - upto you. All the best.
I agree. Here's the link:
