I'm pleased to be able to help you. You can do the course in India without any problems. The easier/better option is instructor lead training, but you may be able to purchase a CD if you send a request to Sun.

I took the liberty of removing your duplicate post, as we do not like cross posting. You may also want to check out use the forum not email.

You can get the course description and content here: SL-285

Honestly I agree with Andrew, self study with no guidance is tough. Yet given the course content and the actual assignment do have some discrepancies. Eg the assignment doesn't allow to use JDBC and the course cover JDBC. It's good to know as if for building real world apps.

I personally think understanding design patterns and how they apply to sample apps/case study is crucial to help building SCJD assignment. The other things like RMI/Sockets and Swing is practice through experiement.

By the way, I didn't take SL-285.
