I had studied Java 7 years back and now I want to appear for SCJP 6 certification. Please guide me how should I prepare and what all study materials should I use.
I have not done any coding for the last 7 years. I have roughly gone through Kathy Sierra book and had attempted for Devaka Coorey's free mock tests. I found the questions very good and tough.
Please tell me how long will it take for a person like me to clear the certification exam with 90+ score and what should be the path that I should follow to acheive that.
Please ...please help me.....
I guess there is no definite answer to your question.
Most important thing is how quickly you can catch up with Java and learn the core concepts, specially those from K&B book.
SCJP is a tricky exam, it actually requires a candidate to understand the topics. And memorisation does not help at all other than some API contents.
Your first time score of Sierra Bates should give you a good indication of where you stand at the moment. And you need to get over 90% in the mock tests to be self assured that you will get 90+ in the real exam.
Now i've just given the free trial exam from whizlab a try and got 86%... Is this free exam (28 questions) of the same level as those commercial exams of whizlab?
So yes i think my score is good enough to pass right?
