Yippee!! I passed my SCJP for Java 1.4 with 90%.
I was terribly unsure about how to prepare as I was the first in my organization taking the 1.4 exam. Luckily, I started off with the Kathy & Bert book and loved it. I started getting the nerves a few weeks before the exam and wondered whether the book would be enough. Thanks to javaranch, I realized that it was ... of course in addition to mock exams.
The last two weeks, I primarily spent on 're-taking' the tests after each chapter in the book, the ones on the CD and of course taking the mock exams..
I think taking the tests at the end of each chapter again once you have completed the book, really helps.
What I also learnt in this whole process is how much more I still have to learn in Java. Miles to go...
Since I really enjoyed the book, I've been looking all over for Head First Java here in India and I'll hopefully have it soon.
Thanks again to all of you at Javaranch and of course Kathy and Bert.
