A little tip for SCJP exam takers

I passed the exam... and I'm ready to start on SCWCD.

I used ExamLab, K&B book and Master Exam... which I think is more than enough to prepare you for the exam. I would like to thank all who helped me to clear my doubts at javaranch, the author of ExamLab and K&B book.

Here are a little tips about the exam:
- a lot of question on thread, generics and collections.
- a lot of questions on polymorphism, overriding, overloading, inheritance and access modifiers.
- more than 10 drag and drop questions.
- some questions seem easy but tricky.
- no question from serialization

My advise is memorize all the rules about generics, polymorphism, thread, String, Arrays etc. Study the API... common constructors parameter and return types... this will save you from getting wrong the easy ones. And take a note from every mock questions you do and burn the concept.

When you do the exam, make sure you get what is asked... before diving into the logic. The exam is much better than ExamLab or Master Exam questions... so relax.

Good luck to all of you.

ExamLab is not a book, but a free software package with SCJP mock exams. The author Devaka Cooray is also a moderator here on JavaRanch.
