Hi all,

This afternoon i took SCJP 5 exam and got 76%. Thanks to all.

With only a little bit knowledge of core Java, i started preparing with the text book by K&B four months back. It is an excellent work by them. Once completed the whole content, i revised for four times. I got just 51% & 54% in the mocks given with the book. I did lot of coding(more than 500 programs) but didn't do any other mocks. That may be the mistake for my less mark in real exam. The real exam was some what easier than i expected.

Thanks to KathySierra & BertBates and ofcourse all the members of this forum for your wonder full help. Good luck to the ones preparing for SCJP.

Now i'm planning for SCWCD. But nothing i know about J2EE. Can some one tell should i first learn basics of J2EE before jumping on the preparation for SCWCD? If so, which book i can go for J2EE & with which depth i can start for SCWCD? Is any book available for SCWCD by K&B? None of my friends is in the IT industry. So please guide me where i should start from and with which materials for SCWCD.

Thanks to all once again.

Congrats !

I would suggest the Head first servlets and JSP book for the SCWCD exam. Its content is rock solid.

Congrats

I would suggest the Head first servlets and JSP book for the SCWCD exam.

This book is by K&B, no doubt one of the best ones to start with.

For others check out the Javaranch Bunkhouse.
It not only tells some of the best books but also experts views on them.

Hope this helps


SCJP, SCWCD.

Hi friends, thank you very much for your appreciation & valuable suggestions.

I�m really happy to hear there is a book by K&B for SCWCD. But i�m still with a bit of confusion if i need to learn the fundamentals of J2EE first. Please let me know if the content of SCWCD(from J2EE) in Head first servlets and JSP starts from the scratch so that some one who knows nothing about J2EE(like me) can directly go with it. (pl., bare up my query. i�m with no knowledge of J2EE) I want to start the preparation early as I�m clarified. I�ve already lost a day.

Awaiting for your valuable suggestions. Thanks again for finding time to respond me.

Congrats! man.
You've inspired me a great bit to take up this exam.
Regarding your SCWCD exam query, do look up sun website for a free downloadable java EE tutorial and make it as a starting point for your exam.
