Passed SCJP with 88.9%

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to all of you for looking at the ins and outs of Java with me. I passed SCJP yestersday with 88.9%.

By the way, I can't swear to it, but I really think that one of the questions had an extra right bracket } at the end of a class definition. "Compilation fails" was NOT one of the options! This was a pretty small class. I'm not complaining about the question and I think I got that one right, but it really may be that the exam question was not "vetted" as it should have been.

I know this is a difficult question, and maybe an inappropriate one for this SCJP forum. Can anyone recommend a decent web site, when it comes to looking for Java jobs in Southern California? Of course, these are difficult times, and I realize that SCJP is basically a steppingstone to more advanced study, as opposed to a guarantee that someone is a good developer. Still, if anyone knows of any worthwhile web sites, I'd really appreciate that.

Best wishes to all for a nice weekend!

Hi Asmita,

I might suggest studying more than one book. K&B is excellent, as we all know. Still, a different perspective (through another book) can be helpful. I benefitted a lot from the Mughal / Rasmussen book, which came out in a new edition less than a year ago. (Important: do NOT buy the older edition of Mughal / Rasmussen... make sure it's the very recent edition, for Java 1.6.)

I think it really helps to write a lot of little code snippets. We've probably all heard this advice many times, but I think it's true.

Best of luck!

Also, I'm with you. I studied with two books; the S&B and the Mughal/Rassmussen one.
Different people, different viewpoint. And also, was a big point for me, more questions
to each chapter.

cheers
Bob

I used the S&B mock exams (CD in book) and the Examlab.

Note that most books are not available for free in electronic format. If you find such books online, they are most likely illegally copied. We cannot allow requests for or offers of illegal material on JavaRanch.

Just buy the book in a book store, it will be a small investment, compared to what you may gain if you're SCJP certified.

You can find it on the sony ebookstore page. Google is your friend: mughal list
But I prefer this as a REAL book. And only if you already have the S&B book.

Hi Sonia

Buy Khalid's A Programmer's Guide to Java SCJP Certification: A Comprehensive Primer book (SCJP 1.6 edition).
It has good chapter of Generics. I have just read that chapter.

Thanks
Abhay
