Hi All,

I 'm new to this forum and this is my first post.
I have 8 months of experience in java/j2ee in a company in Bangalore. I 'm planning to give SCJP certification as I want a good career in java. Please help me how to apply for exam and what books i need to refer.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

1. Time required totally depends on individual,his ability to understand concepts, how much hands on experience you have. how fast are you when it comes to learning things etc...

2. scjp book by Kathy sierra and Bert bates (K&B) is enough.

3. For mock test go through the scjp faq you will find a plenty of free mock exams.

4. To take scjp exam you need to buy scjp voucher which you can buy at any prometric center or any of NIIT center.

Hope this helps

Can you actually buy voucher from prometric ? I thought you could only buy it from SUN local website.

Could you please give us any clarification or confirm what you said ?

HI Venkatesh Goriparthy. Welcome to java ranchers forum. Buy the K&B book
& read the documentation from sun website for depth.
