finally, I took the exam.

The book, by Kathy and Bert, is the best programming book I've ever read. I didn't ever enjoy reading any book as this one. Thanks Kathy. Thanks Bert.

I can't imagine how would I have learnt so many things so quickly, if I was not at this place, JavaRanch.
JavaRanch rocks!

ExamLab is simply amazing piece of Software. Thanks Devaka.

Everyone who ever read my stupid questions and answered them, thank you for your efforts.

NetBeans, what an IDE! Sometimes, coding in IDE's does help, a lot.

can't find better words

hey ,
now i dont that dis is a stupid question or i am a stupid person , but il will ask it anyways .
"how much time does one usually need to prepare for scjp ?" i know it will differ from person to person ,but i have just started and want to set a resonable target for myself. i have been programming in java for about an year now and am quite thorough with basic concepts.

regards aakash

hi,

If I am to quantify, it took me 2 months of Java coding(with book reading) + 3 years of some C/C++ experience, to clear the exam. 1-2 hrs daily is more than enough.
If you "have been programming in java for about an year now...", you should find most of the things in the book easier to grasp, so you might require less time.
Use the forum, ask questions, read other ppl's doubts... it helps a lot.
And once you think you've done enough (...and when you start getting good at mocks), take the exam.

I had set a target of a month for myself, but ended up using two
I think 2 months would have been a more reasonable target for me (and quite sufficient too).

All the best for your preparation

Use this link.
Most of them are not updated as yet. For specific 6 content, you can use free ExamLab (one that I know has been updated).

I've heard that Whizlab and Enthuware (Links on the mock test page) are good, but haven't used them myself.
