Hi,

I am preparing for the SCJP exam.. I have read the "fabulous K and B book" 2 times and done the 2 min drill questions too... I want to jump start into the "test taking phase". I am bound by a time constraint (exam in 2 weeks ) therefore I would appreciate some advice and suggestions to "get the maximum in about 2 weeks time" ..

I have taken a look at the Mock Exam Lists (and a few related posts with ppl who have already passed the exam) and have shortlisted some like Exam Lab by Devaka , Master exam by K and B ...

I would really appreciate if someone could guide me on how to proceed from now on.. I am a bit nervous because the time constraint and as I am working too.. and do not want to digress away giving mock tests..

Thanks!!!

Personally, I suggest you to solve ExamLab (EL) mock tests once you are done with K&B and exercises.
EL questions are so tricky and you will definitely get a lot of benefit out of it (Thanks to Devaka).
I finished K&B 1 time and started EL diagnostic test (30%), practise test 1 (34%). Also tried Master exam but scored only 46%. I have one more week to go. But no worries. I looked the mistakes I made in these tests and making note of it.
I will work on EL remaining practice tests (2 & 3) then go for 2nd Master Exam and ofcourse I want to go thru K&B one more time.
CertPal also good.

Inquisition is also good, if you have time, take that too...

Thank you for each one of the replies.. Will definitely try and go for all of the tests on "EL" as time permits..

I read about Ethuware on some of the earlier posts on Java ranch on such a similar question.. the post basically suggested to try Ethuware before EL so the exam taker come at par with the difficulty level on EL... Any suggestions on this whether how effective this can be?

I basically have chalked down my options to EL, JavaChamp Mocks, K&B, and Iquisition as suggested by Ankit.. I hope this should do it (?)


Thnx once again!

Doing so much tests will take you a lot of time, during this time you could forget things.

In my opinion you don't need to do all these test. Just do ExamLab and be sure to review ALL the questions (included the one you answered right) and burn in your mind the concepts from the questions.


After doing all the tests, repeat them and you are done.

If you want to be more safe, you can just go through entuware (I bought it and is very good). Is very good, because you can review questions and exams even after closing the program, you can pause exam (so you don't need whole 3 hours + review time like in ExamLab, in which you can't pause an exam and you can review the questions only after finishing the exam. If you finish the exam and close the program, you will not able to review questions.).
