I am naveen having around 1 year 6 months of professional experience in Java. I am looking forward to being certified from Sun, preferably a SCJP.
I had a look at those FAQ provided in the forum and i got a basic understanding on the test. Apart from that i would like to have some more tips & suggestions from you people.
Let me tell you all one more thing, my stint in java is purely on maaintenance projects where much of coding is not required. So, i wanted to know, how should i go about this test in particular to the preparation aspect.
Hi naveen one of the first thing that every rancher will tell you is go and get a copy of SCJP book by Kathy Serria and Bert Bates you can find it here this is all you need to pass the exam You do need to be very comfortable with coding so that would be one area you will need to put some efforts so start writing code , no need to write big programs just small code to see how things work and you will do well Oh by the way since you have not mentioned which version of SCJP you are planning I assume you are giving the latest.. but FYI the above book is also available for SCJP5 check out here Hope this helps [ June 10, 2008: Message edited by: abhishek pendkay ]
The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking which created them – Einstein SCJP 1.5, SCWCD, SCBCD in the making

Thanks abhishek. I am planning to take SCJP 5.0.
So, the K&B book is well enough to face the exam.. right?

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
