Hey guys, I've been preparing for scjp 5.0 exam for months, and don't know if it is the time to take the exam or not. In other words, how could I know if I'm ready or not (because you know, anybody have more things to do in his life more than just preparing for the exam ).
Thanks in advance

Did you take any mock exams?? If so how you are scoring in them??

See our SCJP FAQ: Am I ready to take the exam?

We have a Meaningless Drivel forum. Go spend a few days there. Come back here when you want to get back into studying for SCJP.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

Take a few days off and don't touch the books. Then go and do a couple of mock exams to see how you do.

If you are bored and take the exam you will be wasting $200. Take the exam when you are enthusiastic about it and have put in the prep.
I agree. Here's the link:
