hi all
just passed the SCJP today with 93%. Thank you to all on this site for the help through out my preparation.
I want to tell all that the exam is quite easy. I just spent 3 weeks for preparation, and had very little background in java programming before starting the preparation. But I have been programming in C++ for quite some time and the knowledge and background of OOP in C++ helped a lot.. But once u start preparing for the exam u have to leave C++ behind. so for all of you guys who are going for the exam.... dont fear - its quite easy. Just do a lot of coding. If you can tell what your code is going to do before compiling and running it, then u know java.
I only used Khalid's book for the preparation. I think this book is great. And it also goes beyond the exam. So its going to be a good book to keep even after the exam. I havent seen RHE so i cant comment on it.
For anybody who is studying for the exam the JLS and java API documentation are a must see. There is no better source to study java than the documentation provided by sun itself!!!
Also i found Khalid's Mock Exam the best and toughest. Bill Brogden's Question are also good. Marcus Green's Test Papers are too easy and I got 98% in his exam... But they are great for your first mock exam. Jxam is also good.. but some questions are ambigous.
so Best of luck to all who are going for SCJP. I am looking forward to helping you all in any way i can. This site is great in that it gives you an oppurtunity to give back to the javaranch community in return for what u have got.
-Aj

Congratulations Aj!!!
That is really an impressive score, especially considered you only prepared for three weeks.
I am glad to hear you'll be sticking around to help the others.

hi abhimanyu
After you get a hold of basic java concepts and want to start preparation for SCJP the best book is Khalid Mughal's book for java certification. This is the only book i used and it was enough. But it a tough book to start learning Object Oriented Programming concepts. so do clear your OOP concepts before starting for SCJP preparation.
Also for SCJP the java API documentation and JLS are indispensable. Both are available at sun's java site. i dont have the URL's now.... but u can always search.
as far as job prospects for SCJPs are concerned.. i have little idea because i havent really inquired. i am planning to pursue SCJD certification... then maybe look at the job value of these certifications.
