Hello Dhyan,

I didn't use the Monkhouse book during my prep. But you don't really need it to start but having it does give light.

Anyway the first thing to get started is the design.
- What methods are exposed to the client? This clearly drives the architecture a bit.
- RMI or sockets?
- Think locking as the most important aspect of the assignment backend.
- Try reading the db file to get the magic cookie value, make sure you can parse data correctly. Do make backup before trying updates/deletes.
- think about exceptions from the client side. How many exceptions do the client code need to catch?
- focus on the server backend (Data class and RMI/socket) before front end (swing)

You can buy the book as an e-book online, so you will not need to wait.

I definitely agree with the points addressed by my good buddy K. And just to complement what he said, the locking mechanism is the most critical aspect of this certification. And there are some classes/techniques that are still not covered in the SCJP exam (such as ReentrantLock, ReadWriteLock, etc). So, a good tip is to take another look at Threads and these other techniques, and a good resource is this tutorial about concurrency.

I think you can get a link to get the book, ebook and hard copy from Andrew's signature. He's made some recent posts around here, so you should be able to find one just fine.

I am currently in BBSR, Orissa and the book (MonkHouse)is availaible in the local market. I have one as I plan to give SCJD.

If someone in India wants, I can ship it.

Thanks and REgards
