Hi ranchers,
Today I cleared the SCJP 1.4 with 95%.
Most of the Questions are easy but bit tricky.
In order to prepare for the exam, I used
1. K&B book ( Only book which i followed ! Great One )
2. Velmurugan's notes(Really this one helped me a lot in last min prep ),
3. Javacertificate.com(cool site to know your progress),
4. witscale.com ( Nice one)
5. Dan's Question (Difficult one but helped me a lot to feel better in real exam )
6. Marcus green Sample paper ( diff is eqal to Real exam)
7. Last but not Least
javaranch discussion forum & co ranchers
( Every post in the forums is informative and support from co ranchers gave me a lot of confidence )
Cheers,
Senthil SCJP1.4 ( )

Congrats Sentil!! For someone like myself planning on taking the certification quite soon, what would be the most important thing we should know going into the exam in terms of approaching the questions?

Congrats Senthil for great score.
And Matt, here are my 2 cents. I suggest you to thoroughly read and understand the k&B book. Read atleast twice and do read as many posts as possible in SCJP forum. Also practice examples in the book, as we'll know practice makes us perfect. I am sure, you can pull something around this score.
GoodLuck Matt.
Thanks.

Hi Ranchers,
Thank you for every wishes ranchers.
Hi Matt Barbaro ,

This is the approach which i followed in last 2 weeks bfor taking exam.
* Read K&B completely.Attend the Section Exams on the book.
* See each and every post in certification room even it is posted 1 month before.
* Try Dan's Question....Don't worry if u get low marks..
* Then study K&B book ....(Surprise...Now u will get more stuff from the same book ..Bcas U will have more close look bcas of Dan's Exam)
*Now Give all the mock exam a try...Don't worry about the score initially...
(javacertificate.com,witscale.com and refer CERT study faq in Javaranch)
* Before 1 week to exam try Marcus Green's mock exam....This test is having same diff level as real exam...
* Have a good night sleep bfore the exam and approach the exam confidently...
Wish U the ALL the Best ,
Cheers,
Senthil
