today only purchased the vouchers in india.
i am in constant touch with this site and books too but as programming part is concerned i have not made a plenty of them. i am practicing the mcq's from mock exams but not taking the
mock exam as a whole..
are two months enough to get a positive result??
but i want to clear it in one attempt at any cost
are there not certain fixed topics i mean for which weightage is assigned,which are sure to come??
want some valuable sugestions

Srijan,
The topics that will be on the exam are outlined in the Certification Objectives. You'll get questions in every area.
Reading and doing mocks is not enough. Code, code, code ... write as many little test programs as you can to test your understanding of how the language specifications are applied.
Good luck with your studies!

I can definitely second that.
Sure, reading and doing mock exams can make up for minor deficiencies in what you don't know solidly, but don't depend on books and/or practice exams to teach you what you don't know.
Case in point: I just squeaked by (67%) today in my certification exam (Thank goodness that's over), while a coworker of mine didn't quite make it. I'm solid on some parts of it, but I rarely use some things (like I/O and threads) in my day to day work. The reading and mocks helped, but I wish I'd done more coding to get solid.
Best way to learn it is by doing....
Two months should be fine, if you work at it. (I had 5 days warning as to when I was going to take the exam - the timing was my superior's idea.)
