hi everyone.
sorry, I know this might be crazy. java networking, databases (sql statements, connections, etc) as well as applets (including graphics, java 2D, and multimedia) are not listed as scjp/ocpjp certification objectives, but are in most complete java books.
can anyone please assure me I can skip this material when preparing for the exam?
sorry for repeating myself.

but are in most complete java books.

The SCJP covers core java. The other skills that you mentioned are covered in separate certifications like the SCWCD / SCBCD etc.

SCJP 6 articles - SCJP 5/6 mock exams - More SCJP Mocks

Hello Domin,

Check Oracle official website for the course contents. You will get a clear set of objectives from there.

You seem confused.

You should follow certification books to be sure that you don't read anything extra than required for certification

Hi Domingos ,

Complete java books try to teach you complete java but SCJP course is not complete java right.
It has a particular syllabus and the topics you listed above are not included in it..
You can check the oracle website to be sure as suggested by Prithvi.

All the best..

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
