Materials I used to prepare for the exam are:

SCJA Study Guide from ExamScam
Sun�s Practice test for SCJA
UML pdf available on JavaRanch
Some online material related to differences between RMI & Sockets, Swing & AWT ,enumeration, for each loop etc.

Thanks to Cameron McKenzie for providing good and probably the best study guide for SCJA in this time. I really liked the chapters related to UML and EJB.

I found the real exam quite similar but little easier than Sun�s practice exam.

Next target is SCJP5.0!

Thanks so much, Neel! Maybe you could write a 5 star review on Amazon for me?



By the way, I just got the latest printing of the book, with many corrections, and about 100 pages of added content, all from suggestions from readers like yourself.

Congratulations! 96% is an awesome score!

Thank you all!

Michael,

I studied for about two months but mostly in weekends due to heavy work pressure during weekdays. I have been working in Java for last one year.
