I became redundant last Monday 28 Feb 2002. Am available here in sunny Leeds northern England or will of course telecommute to anywhere. Only JavaRanch has taught more people about Java and Java Certification than my jchq website. Been doing Server side java for the last year or so.

when i was preparing scjp2, I started from your site and your mock exams, and from your links i found javaranch thank you
I would say your site is as good as javaranch, at least your mock exams are much better . they might be the best free mock exams available online.

I agree with Bill. I am thankful to you for your website I scored 96% in SCJP2 (with no prior industry exp. with Java and studying for about a month). Thank you again

Once I found a Russian web-site about SCJP exam, and they said that the best site to get help on this certification is Marcus Green site. They did not even mention JavaRanch!

best of luck

maybe we need a new forum - 'dole dossers'.

Having just got one myself today (perl not java though) they are out there - round London things seem to be a bit better than end of last year You in the UK may want to check this out if you haven't seen it already:

OK Mate,
I've been looking for Java work in the UK for about a year now, so the news your'e indispenable doesn't bode my prospects to much. I first found out about certification from your site and passed last March. Thanks for that mate. Your resources were great. Anyway, I expect you'll get snapped up in no time if not already. I hear that it should pick up by the summer over here. I've been setting up my web site ( ) with some server side java app's in the meantime and working part time until it picks up . Check it out if you like. Cheers and good luck

Your site(especially the mock test) helps me a lot to pass the java programmer test this January, thank you so much! I think your site is always the best guide and first aid for anyone who is new to exam.
Good luck!
