Hiiii Guys ,
I have successfully cleared the SCJP 1.5 exam(310-055) with 94%........
I was very much worried about the exam but, finally i passed it with a good score and the credit for my success goes to all my fellow ranchers who helped me directly or indirectly to understand the basics of java.I use to keep an eye on the forums and use to check all the questions regularly.It helped me a lot to understand the basics clearly which helped me a lot to solve the code problems asked in the Exam.....
Talking about my studies , i read the K&B book 3-4 times .It is the best book for the preparation.Thanks Kathy and Bert for such a wonderful book.
Practice exercises are good and all the questions are very concept based.
Devakas simulator are good but are a bit tougher than the real exam.
My advice to all aspirants is to practice more and more questions and do a lot (and i mean a lotttttt) of coding works.It helps to analyse the behaviour of programs and track the minor errors ....With this u'll get better and better with Java as the time passes...So, try to spend some time regularly with Java and let it be your best friend.
