i want to know about programmer certification exam of j2sdk 1.4. please guide me about how to prepare for the certification exam. what are the main reading books and how can i get the practice tests for the exam.
The best book to study from is the Java 2 Sun Certified Programmer and Developer. The authors are Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. You may even meet them on this message board. The ISBN number is 222684-6.
I knew no Java and used this book and passed the exam by a good margin. I had 10+ years of 'C'.
I also found Sun's practice exams very helpful. I didn't absolutely need them to pass, but they gave me some confidence. They were atleast as hard as the exam.
The questions in the book were similar in hardness to the exam.
