I am doing engineering and also preparing for SCJP.
Following K & B for the exam, Completed 3 chapters in a month.
And I am good at those topics.
Is that a good speed ? Or need to be faster or slower?
Recently joined java ranch and found thousands of genius at One Place.
Java Rocks..
How to examine that I am prepared for the SCJP exam ?
Please suggest...

Hey there,

speed is really besides the point. Everyone has its own pace so don't worry about that.

The best advice I can give you regarding that is don't stop then get back to it. That you'll definitely regret since your memory might not be as sharp as when you first started.

To get a good feel about how good are you in those chapters follow this link. There are some really simple ones and some more difficult ones.

A good one which I would recommend saving for last would be the CD that came with the K & B book. Save them for last so you won't start memorizing the answers now and therefore invalidating your results on the mock up test.

keep up the good work ;)

Hi Ruchir, welcome to ranch The speed of preparation depends on your knowledge and experience in Java, which varies from person to person. Main thing is that you understand the basics and fundamentals and please go through Q/A at end of each chapter and see the results and you can see where you stand. Take notes and go through rest of chapters, then you can do some mock exams. Post your questions here, there will be someone always to answer! In my opinion you need to have a good understanding of concepts rather than cramming the exam or doing exam just for the sake of a doing exam for a certificate.

best of luck!

Thanks Rajeev.
You were absolutely right at your words but it requires something to show the interviewer that I know JAVA.
Otherwise he will not believe.
Don't you think so??
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
