I sat the SCJP2 exam this afternoon and surprised myself with a 93% result (but was dead chuffed all the same)
Although I've been in IT the past 18 years, this was my first exposure to Java and OO. I spent about a year teaching myself the Java language, which, with a full-time job and two little toddlers usurping most of my free time, was probably closer to six months in total.
I began by whizzing through a book called "Java 2 in 24 days", which I thought a good intro for a OO newbie like me. I then moved on to RHE's "Complete certification guide", which I studied cover to cover at least three or four times. A month before sitting the exam I purchased the JQ+ testing product, which I now highly recommend as a useful tool to sharpen your awareness of the exam objectives, and to become familiar with reading and analysing Java code.
When writing the exam, it definitely helped to "mark" the questions that I wasn't sure about, and review them again at the end of the test.
And that was it. 93%. If I can do it anyone can
