Hey my fellow Java Programmers!!

I am currently in the process of wanting to get my SCJP 6 Certification. I have been on the Sun website but I guess I am having a hard time finding the link which describes in more details the entire process of what needs to be done for one person to obtain such a certification.

Upon passing the exam, is a certificate mailed to you and it is a document that states you are now certified (silly question as i would assume so).

Anyhelp that you guys can provide and support in this process for me would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks one again,

Navin Seth

Hi Navin Seth,

Welcome to the JavaRanch.

First of all Sun no longer conducts the scjp , its Oracle who conducts the exam . And the name of exam is changed to the OCPJP 6 (1Z0-851 ).

For all your queries ,check http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_exam_id=1Z0_851.


Regards

naveen

Thanks alot for that information as it was quite handy.

SO pretty much all i have to do is get a book, (which one do you recommend), read it study/practice and then go to one of the centers here wher ei stay and show them my voucher (after paying for the exam), and then go write the test. cross my fingers after im finished and hope that i passed?

Please let me know if there is anything more to it, and also which book is the best study guide to pick up to achieve this all in one shot!!

Thanks again as I really do appreciate it

you can go for kathy sierra scjp book, it has good content which helps you in test.
you can evaluate your performance by taking some online mock tests.

Hi navin ,

you don't have to write the test , its a online exam you have to choose a correct option for a question.
And your exam will be evaluated once you finish it and result will be out.

i would refer scjp books from kathy sierra and Khalid Mugal.And better understanding read java language specification 3.0
As for exam preparation once you complete topic , write lot of code on that topic.


Best of luck for your preparation.

Do I get some sort of certificate which indicates that I am certified? it is like 300 something $ to write the test, i would assume i would get something to show for my success and hard work?

hi navin seth ,

i don't know exactly what one get on exam day ,probably they'll give score report of the test.
But certainly you will get Certificate from Oracle in month time or so specifying you name and other details .
But note that certificate from oracle will not specify your test score


you can post these kind of queries on "Certification Results" section.
