Very easy for me.

Difficulty is subjective, but if compare to SCJP, SCJA is much easier.

It very easy as long as you understand the language syntax, high overview of Java technology, and basic UML.

Good Luck !!!

If you already SCJP certified, then it is not worth it to do the SCJA exam. The SCJA exam is very basic.

Indeed, I take the SCJA exam just for revenge.
