I did 3-4 mock exams (IBM, BrainBench, few more). Mock exams love to cross boundaries of SCJP. RHE defines the course outline well. SCJP is much simpler and wants U to know definition fundamentals.
I prefer that one should see the code running for each fundamental definition as this helps to visualize the whole scenario. Each fundas has proper logic with it, its not just an emperical rule for the heck of it.
Go ahead!! Best'o'luck.
Revise your answers before U leave test-room, I m too hasty on that :-)

Brainbench exam is way beyond SCJP objectives. If you
know Java as per only SCJP objectives, the results might
be depressing.

'Brainbench' tests include RMI, JDBC, JNI, Swing & OOAD apart from the SCJP Objectives. Hence the perceived degree of difficulty as compared to the SCJP exam/s!

thanx to u all!.
Yeah BrainBench ( ofcourse http://brainbench.com/) covers beyond SCJP scope, but they give a neat certificate, all for free. The mock exams given in javaranch r SCJP oriented. RHE is good and don't be lazy in reffering to other books (Gosling etc.) if U hav any doubts. This saloon will help a lot too.
