Cattle Drive ? in re: SCJP

I realize that I'll have lots of studying to do, and I've got a long way to go, but I was wondering based on other's past experience if once you successfully completed all the assignments in Cattle Drive you felt comfortable enough to start preparing for the SCJP?
Also, I'm just curious to know how long it's taken others to complete all the assignments in Cattle Drive. My goal is to become a SCJP by June. I'm trying to determine whether or not this is a realistic goal, or should I shoot for a later date?
Thanks ~ Jeff

Hi Jeff,
I dont know how long it takes to complete cattledrive's assignments ... But few friends of mine have successfully sleared the certification in 3 months preperation ... Of course it depends on how much time you can spend each day and how comfortable you are with java ... my friends were'nt great programmars before they gave the certification so if you can work out a routine and stick to it, you can make it ...
Good Luck

Those students with the persistance to finish the cattle drive have completed the first 8 assignments in anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks depending on how much time they are willing to dedicate to it.

I agree. Here's the link:
