i am going to ask u some very basic and elementary questions.pls answer my questions

1. I have the test in SCJP 1.4 on jun 29.Is the time is enough for me to get good marks in SCJP?

2. I am just following the kathy sierra and bert book(All in one series) only.
Is that book alone is enough for me to get good marks?.Should i follow some other book?

3. sorry for asking this question
I saw the SUN website they have new test (SCJP 5.0).Is SCJP 1.4 is very inferior to SCJP 5.0?.If that is the case then i can write SCJP 1.5 directly.
What I mean by the word inferior is what the employer will think about
SCJP 1.4 when compared to SCJP 5.0. Which is better

These questions have been asked for many times here, you can do a simple search to dig out the answers.


1. I have the test in SCJP 1.4 on jun 29.Is the time is enough for me to get good marks in SCJP?

Depends on how much time you put in for everyday, and your definition of good marks.

Usually, it is better to have 1 month time study with 3-4 hours per day.


2. I am just following the kathy sierra and bert book(All in one series) only. Is that book alone is enough for me to get good marks?.Should i follow some other book?

Yes, if you fully understand the materials.

If you wish, you could read JLS as well.

Basically, employers might not know the difference, and the market will not be so up-to-date, except for some special reasons.

Of course, if you can present to the employers that you are a fast learner to new technology, it will definitely be an advantages.

However, it is not that easy to study for SCJP 5.0 as:
1. too less materials
2. exam format is very different, in addition to MC, there are Drag & Drop questions

By the way, your name violates the
Naming Policy, please change it at Your Profile.
