Hi,
By the grace of God I have cleared SCJP.I must say the exam paper was much easier than I expected it to be.It took me about 2.5 months to prepare for the exam out of which 1.5 months were spent on studying the two best books for preparation of SCJP which were the "Java 2 Certfication Guide by RHE" and the other one was Khalid Mughal`s book although the latter was very hard to digest as it was very lengthy.The final 1 month of my preparation were spent on giving as many mock exams I could find on the net and regularly visiting the Javaranch discussion forum where I always recieved the correct answer when there was something confusing for me.I am thankful to Maha for her great home page which contains links to almost 50 mock papers.When giving the mock exams we should be careful that we write down our mistakes immediately after giving the paper as it helps us not to repeat the same mistakes.The final two or three days were very tough for me considering the fact that I would not only loose $150 if I fail the exam but also the 2.5 months of hard work would be wasted.
Wish all the people who are preparing for the SCJP best of luck.If there are any queries you are most welcome to ask me.
A very happy Syed.
