Thanks to Andrew Monkhouse, Peter Den Haan, Max Habibi and everybody in this forum for your support and collaboration. You're the best, guys! :-)

I'm just wondering if there are any other SCJDs in MEXICO. I live in Puebla city, Mexico!

Cheers,
Azbel Eden.

Hello, rehans.
Thanks for replying. You need preparation before start designing and coding. I recommend the books:

- The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam with J2SE 1.4, by Mehran Habibi.
- The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam with J2SE 5, by Andrew Monkhouse.
- Java 2 Developer Exam Cram 2, by Alain Trottier.

Check on Amazon and search for related books. You can always learn from every of them. Once you start reading your assignment, I recommend to browse this forum and search for the most important topics of the assignment: locking, RMI, criteria find, etc. There are a lot of valuable material there.

Start by analyzing the requirements carefully, design, code and document. Test and refactor your code if necessary. I didn't use a specific methodology, but it was a mix of methodologies proposed in all the books I mentioned.

I spend 4 months in total. I have a job so I worked on the assignment on evenings and weekends. Just one pice of advice: be consistent, don't quit in the middle, otherwise you will finish the assignment in a couple of years.

Good luck! :-)
