Hi,
I plan to take the SJCP exam, but I haven't been involved in AWT programming before.
As it's part of the sylabus, can anyone tell me on how I should read up on this topic?
Is there any important concepts that I should take note of, instead of reading and program out the
entire AWT classes?
Thanks in advance.

Ok, since I hijacked this thread, I will make ammends:
Choi,
the best way to learn the AWT for the test is to go through the tutorials in one of the study books, either Complete Java 2 Certification, (RHE) or A Programmer's Guide to Certification (Khalid/Rasmusen). If you use the Khalid book, it also discusses Swing, but that's not on the test.
After you have gone over them in the book(s), write many small little programs that test out each AWT component. There's not that many of them. By excersising the various options with each component in code, you will quickly develop an understanding of how to use them in an actual program. This will really help you learn the material quickly.
Good luck!

Thanks, Rob. I have gone through a few exam questions and found most of them test more on AWT theories.
I'm using the Java Language Book from Sun Java. Is it good enough?
