Well, today was the D-day and I got thru' the Sun Certification exam. It's a good feeling though, I didn't score as much as expected. I just started studying "for the exam" two weeks ago...October 30th, 3000 to be precise. The first thing I did was to call Sun, get the voucher & then schedule my test exactly two weeks ahead... bold step...but yes I needed a target. I've no prior Java Experience or any OOPs development experience. I knew C++ which I'd learnt in my academic carrer...but hardly worked on it.
So considering all these...I think I made it good. I've this habit of making silly mistakes and well, think about it ...in 59 Questions even if you mess up with 5 questions...boom...you slide down by 10%. so... a tip to the new aspirants... keep your calm and just concentrate on the subject. You need to be attentive till the last question. The new SCJP format is not a whole lot newer, except that you'll have lesser time, newer questions, and maybe...a few more questions with code analysis than true or false.
I referred to Khalid Mughal...and in the last stages I referred to RHE. Well, Khalid is an excellent book... and so is RHE. RHE is limited...but Khalid will make your basics very very strong. In fact the exercise after the end of each chapter will ivariably make you go back and have a glance at the same chapter again. I used to regularly read this forum , went thru' Maha's page, gave a few mock tests.... I'm grateful to everyone who have created such a wonderful place to learn.
Thanks... that was a long mail...but wanted to share some views & tips with you... and AGAIN don't fear the new format...it is not tough at all. Know your subject well and ATTACK.....
