Hi everyone!

I would like to share my success story, so here are my tips:
http://www.asgarli.net/2010/02/my-tips-on-passing-sun-certified.html

English is not my native, so please do not judge my writing skills too hard

I would also like to add that it took only 2 weeks for me to receive official certificate, not 4-6 as I was expecting.

from your blog

Code, code, code! I will say it again, code! Whatever question arises in your head, try to immediately figure it out by writing a small piece of program that would help you to see what is going on and understand it. Leave no darkness in your mind about how things work in Java.

Great Point!


Also try to use java compiler from console, not IDE like Eclipse, because sometimes they have I/O problems of mixing outputs

Disagree . IDE saves time . when you encounter *mixing outputs* ? . example ,if you use combination of System.out and System.err then you will find that , but it is not an IDE problem.

Congratulations

I meant don't use IDE for sample codes for exam preparation, not in general. I knew a guy in my ex-job who was still using emacs, it was quite pitiful


Congratulations


Thanks!

I attended it in Germany, because that's where I currently live. If you live in Azerbaijan I think closest place to take it is in Turkey, it is also recommended alternate country from Sun for the countries where Sun Training is not available : http://www.sun.com/global_training/alternate.html

I don't know what are rules when you have to take it in other country, because as I was pointed out in one of the topics I created that exam could be rescheduled when you go to the testing center, so you must be careful if you travel to another country to take a test.
You could contact Sun Training in Turkey to ask for clarifications, here are its contact details :
Telephone:90 212 335 22 68
