I feel that CD tests in Khalid Mughal and Kathy sierra are tough.
Does the exam have that sort of typical qns?
I have taken Dan's Mock qns(July 21 Comprehensive stuff).Is that enough for the exam.B'coz it has lot of tips than Kathy's.
Is it enough to go thru Kathy's book for"ThreadS".
Anyone plz reply me.

Hi Viji,

For threads in particular, but also for the Collection
framework, Sun's free tutorials were very good.

It's worthwhile reading them, just to pin down the
concepts involved.

I read both "Java 2, Sun Certified Programmer and Developer for Java 2" by Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates and "A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification, 2nd Ed" by Khalid A. Mughal and Rolf W. Rasmussen.

I am the kind of guy that likes to know how things work. I found the tests in Java 2, Sun Certified Programmer and Developer for Java 2 a great start. They did not drill down into the details like the test in "A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification, 2nd Ed". Additionally, I found the Whizlabs software drilled into even more detail, in their tests.

I took the SCJP test yesterday and found it easier than the Whizlabs tests..
