Unfortunately, the exam was much more difficult than expected. The questions were not straightforward, and most of them were "conversions" from those previously released. Therefore, approaching and studying released questions from various viewpoints will be necessary. However, it is nearly impossible without basic knowledge related to JAVA2. In conclusion, to sit for the SCJP examination, you will have to study at least
1)one textbook related to the basics of JAVA2
2)one textbook related to SCJP(Sun Certified JAVA Professional) and
3)hundreds of previously released questions and answers.
Using these materials together, you'll need only 2 weeks to prepare for and pass the exam, even if you're a beginner.
I am now preparing for CompTIA Ebiz+ exam which will be taken next week.
Regards,
hhsschoi (CompTIA I-net+, SCJP)

A beginner ? No way !
I just passed scjp with 88% today. I prepared the exam for 9 weeks with at least five hours a day. And I know how to program in assembly, C++ and Visual C++. I spent two weeks just to do JQPlus ! I took me two hours to do a mock exam. And after I finished do it, I took another three hours to go through every question and its explanation carefully. There are 10 mock exams in JQPlus. That took me 50 hours. Then I did the
pratice exams and the random exams. And I didn't
get even 90%.
For a beginner, four months are needed at least,
unless he/she just want to passed the exam with
61%.
