Hi all

I have completed reading K&B book and did the mock papers available in Javaranch.

First I scored less later I scored around 60-70%.

I am very confident about the chapters in K&B.

Now i am giving exam on dec 31st.

I am feeling already tension here.
Do give me tips and advice before taking exam.....

Are there any mock so that i can get real experience similiar to SCJP real exam?

Do help me....

Regards,
Karu

Hi, Karthik, it seems that you're looking for some support and reassurance and I can think of only one thing to say: they need to come from within.
Remember, you're not taking this exam to get a piece of paper with Sun's logo that says that you're now "one of the force". The certificate by itself is meaningless.
Take a step back and think a little higher. The pass/fail end is a natural end result of the means. If your knowledge is strong you'll pass and that's what a certificate says anyway.
If you're feeling unsure, you still have plenty of time. Don't rush into the exam by memorizing bits and pieces. Make sure you understand the concepts. Many seemingly intricate questions can be breezed thru if you're strong with your concepts.
So focus on learning/understanding and your result will be a natural end of your means.
Even if you do get the certificate, when you go for an interview, the mention of the certification will just be an interesting by-note to your employer. They'll do their own testing/interviewing etc. You need to be good with your fundamentals and then the exam/interview will be a breeze.
Also you'll actually ENJOY writing the exam (I'm not kidding!).
Good luck!

Sashi,

Thanks for advice.

I am confident with concepts but little poor in long code which makes me tension.

Could you also send me useful notes.
