This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I need a little direction while preparing for SCJP... I have read Kathy Sierra and Bates book almost twice. However, before starting i was fairly new to the JAVA language, and had referred JAVA complete reference before starting Kathy Sierra and Bates book.
Conceptually i consider my self fairly strong in JAVA, however, its difficult to remember every single detail, considering i am not a JAVA programmer right now... and have to go back occasionally to the pages for a section while preparing for this exam...
I am at a stage now, where i need to give the exam latest by October first week... I would appreciate any kind of help that you might have to offer to take it off from here.. I am regular on this forum, its a great place to be for a beginner or an expert in JAVA!
What i am looking for is that after reading the kathy book (twice), should it be a good practice to skim through all the sections once before starting the mock tests...( considering i am fairly low on direction right now, a disastrous score is the last thing i am looking for )
I am currently reading up the last few pages in the book...So, please! share any kind of experiences/methods of preparation which you might think will be useful...any effective ways which would help to revise the topics ???
I have the CD from the kathy seirra book on mock test and i plan on doing the Exam Lab by Devaka...Are there any other mock tests/Questions which could be helpful!!! ???
I really want to get a good score and i have been preparing since a considerable amount of time(with work)...
I look for posts where ppl share their experiences after they give their exams! Thanks to them! I would be really appreciate for any form of advice!!
In fact, I did take the time to post it on the SCJP certification forum initially .. however, lost the session and had to re-login in order to post this topic... i guess there was a mess up there.. Thanks for noticing anyway...
