Hello to all, i'm new to this website and seeing as how its a good way to speak with people about the SCJP i was interested in learning more about it.
I am currently an undergraduate, about to graduate with a BS in Computer Science and I have done a bit of programming, primarily in Java. I'm very interested in taking the "Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, SE 6.0 Test"
I purchased a book with a pretty good and hefty amount of information for the test that most people recommended to me. It is the "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065" by Sierra and Bates
However, I am a little confused about the test and I couldn't find much information on it even on Sun's website.
I have a few questions, first is the test completed on a computer or is it a written test?
Second, is the test only 60 multiple choice questions? I ask this because towards the end of this book it mentions some form of a program you must turn in and also a follow up essay exam. I am a little confused about this essay portion because I thought it was simply a 60 question multiple choice test.
And lastly, apparently you get 180 minutes for this test, are there any breaks in it for sections or anything...? Or is it just a start and go until you finish type of test?
The SCJP exam doesn't have any written test. At the end of SCJP book, they've covered some details about SCJD exam which has a written test. The time and number of questions in the exam are given in the ScjpFaq...

Can you confirm on wait/notify ?
I am sure about it. You can also check objectives But remember that these methods belong to Object class and are no static (You don't have to know how wait/notify work but you must know methods of the Object class)
