Way to go Soum.
Could you share your thoughts? Where can we focus our energies? How long did it take to prepare.
Thanks

Hi:
Just one to share my experience with the certification..i did not have much java experience when i started for it but had a few years of object oriented experience..i would recomment 'thinking in java' to be the best book that i have gone through..i started off just to learn good java and the book is good. after that i bought jwhiz and their exams do a good job in preparing you for the real exam...
the exam for the first 10 mins was pretty difficult..maybe it was the nerves ..as it went in things looked pretty easy....there was a very tough thread question i got wrong (i think) so threads is one subject that you might want to look at in depth.....otherwise the program is such that getting 60% would be pretty easy but going over that depends on your kind of preparation....if you go over the important classes through the API..i/o classes..threads..string..stringbuffer then you would be ok...give lots of exams onthe net...as many times as you want..when you give exams you get to see topics that you don't know so go over them and make sure you are ready to take it again when you get it somewhere else..so i guess mock exams are a great exercise to increase your knowledge of java..do some coding..i used to code a lot and learned a lot from it...i always used to store the questions/answers that i got wrong.( i wrote a shabby program to do the job for me !)..and went over it a number of times.....
let me know if you need to know anything else
best of luck

Hi Soum,
Is there anything you'd recommend to study threads better? It seems alot of people say there are difficult questions on them on the exam.
