Thanks to Devaka Cooray and the ExamLab SCJP-5 simulator. This simulator is almost identical to the Sylvan Prometric test engine, and the mock exams are a good bit more difficult than the actual SCJP exam.
Thanks to WhizLabs SCJP-5 simulator. This simulator has a different interface than the Sylvan Prometric test engine, but the questions are good (some of them are tough questions).
Thanks to K & B SCJP-5 Study Guide ( I read it more than twice ).
I have been studying for a couple of months (while out-of-work and looking for a job). I didn't count, but I probably completed close to 20 mock exams during the last two months. I wrote a lot of small programs using the java-C compiler and the GVim editor. Often, the best way to get an understanding of how Java works is by trial-and-error.
Now that my Java skills are sharp, I don't want to backslide. I plan to keep them sharp with continued study.

I particularly would like to thank Ankit Garg and Henry Wong of this forum, and all others who have been kind enough to respond to questions that I've posted here.
