Well firstly i will say my hie to all the members out there

i came across this forum through one of my friend who suggested me to visit this forum regularly

Well im a computer science student really intrested in mastering java...i have just gone through a couse of core java and i want to further clear and want to prove my expertise in java

my teachers suggested me to start from SCJP...but after going to all forums out on the main page...i have decided why not to go from the base SCJA

so any suggesions for me to start preparing for SCJA..

i also know that Mr. cameron books are oustanding in clearing concepts ...buh sorry to say that forget about those books...i cant purchase them as they are very costly for a student...moreover they are hardly aviliable in my country (INDIA)

well waiting for some useful suggesions(how to start and which book to pick up first etc.) to start preparing for SCJA

Howdy Greenhorn! Welcome to the JavaRanch!

We'll try and get those SCJA Guides of mine out to India in the near future. I keep trying!

One big piece of advice that's always valid is to print out the exam objectives, and study accordingly. Go over each objective, understand what each objective means, look for chapters in good books like Head First Java, or even college course books that cover those objectives, and study. Write code, and even try to anticipate what types of questions they might ask on a given objective. Try and get into the head of the examiner.

Good luck! And keep us posted on your progress.
