This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am taking scjp 1.4 exam on 31st of this month and due to extra work load i could not prepare proper material. So i am having four full days. Could any one guide me to some source of material where i can get to read only important points rather than lengthy notes.
Today when i started preparing i was very confusing to start with which topic as i already all topics but i could not remember the points due to a a break of 10 days due to extra work.
I am a bit tense at moment and i really appreciate some right kind of suggestions and help which help me to make my exam smoothly.
Though I personally did not take up SCJP till now, my advice on your situation will be to go through all the 2 minute drills from K&B book first.
After reading the 2 minute drill on a particular chapter, take the self test. You may get many questions incorrectly, but that is what you want at this stage. Why?
You will almost for sure make silly mistakes on the questions that you got wrong. So, this is the time to see what sort of mistakes you are making. So, go through all the explanations for the answers of the self test. Finish all the self tests within two days.
Then go through the two minute drills once again and take up one full exam on 29th evening or 30th morning, don't forget to go through the explanation for the answers (even if you have got the answer correct). I am sure you will do well.
But if you are in any doubt, postpone the exam if you can. Otherwise go for the kill...
All the best....

Thanks srikanth. Actually i am a guy who likes to post pone the things. So i know if i buy voucher in previous month (when i started thinking about this exam) i will definetly postpone it to next year. So i took coupon from my friend who took 2 coupons and its expiry date is july 31st.
So i dont have a choice to postpone it. Any how your explanation was very motivative and i will try to give everything in these four days.
Thanks all for motivating and growing confidence in me to take the exam.
