Welcome to Javaranch !!

don't put any time restriction on yourself..before appearing for main exam try to give as many mocks as you can..as it will help you to know your exact position and what chances you have of clearing your paper...

Hi,
It is better to write mock exams and see your performance and later attend
your exam beacuse writing fastly will be ok but see the fact that you are loosing the money also.

Hi Ramya! Knowing java and appearing for SCJP are two different things, please do try atleast one mock test before you head on, it would help assessing yourself.

No probs, no issues dont panic. Since you already know java it should not be much problem, plan to finish K&B once.

Hope this helps. Wish you luck.

Hi Ramya! Just go through "Two minutes Drill" at the end in each chapter in K&B book and try with Whizlabs simulator.
You will get it DEFINITELY...!!!


Good Luck
