hi all, thanks for ur 'congrats'! i'm to look into developers exam material and if i find it interesting i'd go for that. but i 'm not sure. currently looking for full time job after the graduation ( i graduated. did MS in CS). market still seems tough for freshers and specially F-1 visas like me. hey, mark i will be looking at posts on this forum which gave me immense support and excellent environment to work. i like the forum. ppl love to learn/help regardless of geographical location, race etc etc... all kind of persons r wellcomed by the forum (from most advanced to most beginners). i thank all the administrators who does really a great job taking time outof their busy working schedule and try to provide as much as they can. i do job, so i know how much willingness and dedication it takes to do something they r doing along with the job and all sorts of other crap. sonir, i guess it would not make much diff if i talk about what kind of questions i get. 'coz u it would b useless as all of the ppl might have diff scenarios and questions. but i would recomment do follow following things (which i was lacking till the day before ) and things which has got me thru every other exam so far with good scores, 1. maintain ur calm. 2. read qeustions and all the answers carefully. (nobdoy is gonna give u a price if u finish in 1/2 hr or 15 mins or 1/2 hr earlier). if u can use 2 hrs and score 98% thats better than to finish it off in 1.5 hrs with 88%. they give time to THINK. not to SAVE 3. b confident like HELL (even if u don know ANYTHING!!) (well, thats how i work) i'd say, in any exam the formula is, 60% confidence + 40% ur knowledge. (i've tried it and it has worked for me most the times but u cant, of course, go without preparation at all )
4. develop OUT-OF-BOX thinking (this might b hard for u to understand i believe ) which helps u in figuring out UR OWN errors that were not due to the reason that "u dont know the correct ans" but due to the reason that "u overlooked some scenario under pressure which u generally would not have done if had been more relaxed" solve the q once carefully. forgert it. take it up back with fresh mind after A SECOND or TWO. u 'll know if u did foolish mistake. 5. boost ur confidence the day before the exam doing things u love. just forget every Java COde on the world! (that 'll help in point 4 as well). (i listened to songs i like for 2 hrs the night before and did nothing after that regarding java). well, some of this tips have appeared in earlier posts also and so u might have got SICK of it but it helps if somebody let u rember things again and again. those gets WOVEN to u (if u know what i mean). thats all for now i guess. good luck to u guys. regards maulin.

hi rex, book depends upon ur level at the beginning state of the preparation. if u r some CS major or good at coding and having some exp at Java then go for harder book else go for easier and simpler book. in my case, i 's pretty much used to java and all kind of lang problems being CS major and have strong fundamentals about systems etc..etc.. so chose KM as a reference which ppl say is little hard to follow. (i 've read Oriellly's book for java and i tell u thats the BEST i've ever seen-Java in Nutshell for JDK1.2/1.3. i've read 6-7 good books of java thoroly apart from KM. not for the purpose of the certification tho). for the certification choose books with objectives and which is "meanly" designed for the exam go for RHE if u like. gather view about the books before buying. i didnt care much about book as i just wanted to 've flavor of the questions and the cert exam. Certification books points "directly" to the issues without all garbage around it and so they are easier to follow and more helpful than other books. e.g. if u read Orielly's book i mentioned earlier u 'd find EVERY POINT discussed in KM with the same CLARITY but it is harder to find those points and their importance in it than in KM. hih, maulin.
