I was a silent observer of this forum. Cleared OCJP today. Thought of sharing my experience with the fellow ranchers

New to Java, approximately 15 to 20 days of preparation.
Read K&B (pdf) 3 times and when ever recessionary cleared the concepts with the help of Java Tutorial and web.
Used Enthuware + Learnkey simulator + K&B self test.

First run :

1. Highlighted the important points in bright color and added my understanding as sticky notes
2. Created a sticky note at the first page, and kept adding the page # along with the important area to revise
eg: @page 589 and 594 read the equals() and the hashCode() Contracts respectively
3. Created sample programs for the different concepts discussed. Added my understanding as comments.

Second run:
went through the highlighted text and sticky notes. modified the notes when ever necessary. revisited the code snippets and modified them based on the need.

Third run:
revisited the pages marked in the step 2 of the first run along with the code snippets.

Enthuware tests were very good. Learn Key was OK.

Next step : web component certification

Champions arenĀ“t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a DESIRE, a DREAM, a VISION
I agree. Here's the link:
