Hi guys,

i am new to this forum, i hope i can make friends with u.
recently, i am preparing for the SCJP exam. i've already registered
for the 1st exam, the dead line is Dec 31,2004. i am not very
confident for this coming exam, although i've worked on Java for about
2years. what i did in the past 2 years, are some software development
projects required some basic Java knowledge. i'm afraid that there may
be some questions asking for the details of Java.

can anybody give me some suggestions? my mail is (click on mail icon)
thax a lot!

I can tell you what worked for me. By the way, I passed the exam recently and have no on-the-job experience with Java so you should not feel like the exam will be too hard for you since you already have some working experience. I read the Java study guide book by Kathy and Bert about three times and took as many free mock exams as I could find on the web. I found the book to be very helpful in identifying what would be on the exam. Check out the bunkhouse on JavaRanch for a list of books and also check out the certification FAQ on JavaRanch. I found them to be some of the most helpful references anywhere. Hope that helps.

Good luck!

PS: I would think again about posting your email address to any forum anywhere on the net unless you want a lot of junk mail. A lot of junk mailers pick up on these addresses. It's a shame I know.
