Hi all,

I am planning to take SCJP6 exam by mid June2011 .As of now I started brushing my java concepts using Head First Java book.I plan to read SCJP certification book by Kathy .I have a few questions:

1)Is it the right time to take exam in mid of june from now or too early because I would be finishing Head First java in another 10 days and start Study Guide by Katherine Sierra and Bert Bates (K&B).

2)Will the swing concepts be tested in SCJP6 test.can I skip them now in HFJ.

3)In the exam do we get only multiple choice and drag drop type questions or do we need to write programs there?I am writing the SCJP 1.6 (310-065).

4)As of my experience with java just beginner level ,learnt during college semester work.


Any suggestion are welcome.


Appreciate your time and help.
Thanks again.

1. I would recommend you to give yourself a little longer time to study since you have not started KB book yet, that book is a must.
2. In the test I took, there is nothing about it, I have not looked at the SCJP requirements, but probably some can confirm it.
3. you will get multiple choices as well as DnD questions, be ready for both kinds.

Ashwathi,

Test the waters by attempting a couple of mock exams (http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/SCJP-FAQ). If you pass with a good score (read >80%), you are ready for the real exam.

cheers

2. No Swing concepts required for SCJP.
3. Also you are not required write the programs there. But the Drag N Drop questions will be somewhat closer to writing one program (less challenging than writing a complete program though)
