hello All. i have some doubts in my mind.

First i have just started reading kathy Book for SJCP. it is long and like 800 pages which will take me good 3 months because of my scheudle. i was watching in the forums not this one but java forums that people can pass SJCP exam by getting some questions from the website like 300 question revise the answers and go for the test.

Is that true? if its not then can you refer me to any website which guarantees to pass SJCp. dont mind but i think getting certified is not my thing. sometime you dont even use those stuff in real life programming.

Any suggestions will be great.

First of all i suggest you read k & b book completely then give some mock exams based on your performance schedule your exam. Exam will be tough so prepare very well just dont write the mock exams and go.

Thanks for the reply arora. so This is the only way to pass SJCP by reading the whole 800 pages book and then give some mock exams? right?.

Any shortcut way of getting through SCJP probably involves cheating. You want to do that? Unfortunately, some do.

We run JavaRanch to give our help to those who choose the honest hardworking way of obtaining their SCJP.
