I am planning to giving SCJP sometime by this end of the year. I completed my Bachelor's in computer science.I have pretty well upto 1 year experince in C,C++.
I never worked on Java but just learned a bit.

I like to know where can I find good materials and can I give the exam as I have no previous experince in Java. I checked out this forum people whoever gave the exam are pretty much experineced.

Please help me out with your valuable suggestions.

hi prerna,

Cool .....You have given your self good time for the exam....you should be able to do it.......Javaranch is the nice place to start with....

www.jchq.net ....you can find Marcus green's excellent tutorials.......

http://www.dpo.uab.edu/~asm/mock.html has the link for all mock exams....

also please check the SCJP tipline (by Corey)link provided in the forum.....Dan's mock is also great.........

www.whizlabs.com has good tutorials.......As far as books are concerned....Kathy Sierra and Bates...is the best......

What I feel about taking the exam is ....it's all about interest....Experience may help sorry will definitely help.....But if you have the will to win I am sure you can do.......As you go along you will get to know lot many intricacies of JAVA language which even 1+ years exp.in Java may not know.....

All the best for the exam.......BTW I am yet to take my exam and I am preparing for it.......Hope you will have great time with Java and our home javaranch.com as fellow ranchers and I do......

prerna, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). You are sure to find most of the information you require there.

Be sure to check out Dirk Schreckmanns links he gave you here.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
