Definitely go for some testing. By reading&understanding the book you gain sound knowledge. But even when you think you've understood it, mock tests may help you to discover your weaknesses.You should also write a lot of sample code to answer your questions and if you are not sure, consult this forum.

Maybe I'm not the right person to answer, because I'm still preparing for the SCJP. I've just written how I'm doing it. Anyway, when you browse through this forum and SCJP FAQ you will find many DOs and DONTs.
Good luck!

I agree with Rasto. Studying books indeed is important but giving some exams is equally important. Once you have gone through any book for SCJP twice, then you must read the book only after giving some mock papers and exploring your weaknesses.

Hello,
some time only reading is not important.so many time happened i gone though one concept. i felt comfortable, confident. but when i solve some question i come to know i interpreted question wrong or some time applied wrong concept.

So gone through as many as mock exam. and if you are having good mock exam and simulator share with us.

If you have (only) read the K&B book and you have given yourself 20 days before you take the exam you will not pass the exam.

Pradeepta! I dont know how old you are. Can you recall your school days?
Did you only go through the formulea in maths, physics etc.? I think, like others, you used to solve the numerical problems also.

Come on Mr. Green! I admire you. But we shouldn't doubt on one's IQ. 20 days might be anough for Pradeepta. We shouldn'n discourage one like you did. There should have been other tone to say the same.

thankyou all for your suggestions.i understand it is important to practise that's why i was asking if 20 days are enough for practising and giving mock exams?
please suggest should i buy some mock exams or go for the free ones available on net.
if possible provide some links.
thanks
