Hi All,

This is my first post in the forum. I'm thinking to sit for the SCJP 5.0 exam but just don't know where and how to start. Perhaps lack of motivation and guideline.

If anyone out there have any good suggestion and advise please feel free to help me out on this matter.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Lee,

I believe that the SCJP certification itself is a motivation for studying Java. In fact, that's how it is in my case. I was not having a enough motivation and there was no direction when I started to learn Java. Since Java is so vast, you can easily get lost as to where to start and what to learn. SCJP gave a very good direction and a goal. Plus when you are working and have a family it's easy to forget/ ignore to study with your busy schedule.

But since the time I decided to do SCJP, I am finding that I am studying every single day without fail.

Then when I came to Javaranch forums, it's inspiration everywhere This place is filled with energy. And the stories in the results forum also motivates you a lot.

When you get into the flow, I think you will get your motivation, the important thing is to just start it and not keep thinking that I will do it when I have more time or when I finish my current activity etc. etc.
Wishing you all the best!
