Hi, Am a BE IT Graduate from Mumbai University,India and planning to do SCJP. i need information as to when the exams are usually conducted(annually?) by Sun?I have checked Sun's site regarding certification but it is far more confusing than giving exact information, So Please someone help me!
Where are the centers where i can pay my fees and give xams(in Mumbai, India)?
One more thing,i am confuse with the numbers that come alongwith these terms JDK, Java ,SCJP?.......e.g does it mean that jdk 1.4 <=> Java 2 <=> SCJP 1.4 ? How?...i mean why? ...........Please somebody help me in this matter!
Where can i get free , uptodate and correct tutorials and information required for giving xams on Internet?(.....i have unlimited Internet i want to exploit it! to its fullest extent! )
Thanks and Regards

Exams for SCJP are conducted every minute. And you can give your exam in and Prometric Center. you can pay the fees of the exam and get a voucher for the exam from the prometric ceter itself. You must be having NIIT prometric centers in mumbai, you can contact them.
There are different versions of java in the market today : Vesion Exam _______________________ JDK 1.2 SCJP 1.2(dunno if still available) JDK 1.3 SCJP 1.3(dunno if still available) JDK 1.4 SCJP 1.4 JDK 1.5(Tiger) SCJP 5.0 (Tiger)
Tiger is the latest exam offered by Sun in JAVA. Although limited study material is availble in the market for TIGER. but you can wait for K&B's Book to relase.

K&B is a book for SCJP 5.0 by Kathy Serria and Bert Bates.
For online free material you have got Java Language Specification, API, Some Mock exams..etc
In Mumbai you can give exam in Prometric Center Andheri or UltraMax Dadar, SoftOrigin Dadar, NIIT center in Bandra and at few other places. (You can find info in google or contact 197 MTNL directory service and find Phone number of center say Prometric center, Marwah House, Andheri). Prometric person will help you. But you can get voucher from UltraMax or NIIT so check it (ask prometric person).
goto java.sun.com go to certification links and select SCJP it will show all available exam 1.2 1.4 5.0
you can study objectives and decide which you want to give.
Regarding books material....
go through javaranch.com/faq.jsp other good site is jdiscuss.com
If you know core java than Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates book is very good for scjp1.4 exam, for scjp5.0 K&B book is not out yet but is expected in near future. (scjp5.0 or 1.5 are same you may call it TIGER). if you are new to java than reading Head First Java would be a good choice. and than K&B book.
give mock exams after you study visit javaranch.com and SCJP forum and you will be helped alot.
after you study few topics you can give topic wise mock test like dan chisholm and javaprepare.com (find other test thorugh google and search).
also go to google.com find about faq, mocks etc. [ September 18, 2005: Message edited by: Santana Iyer ]
