Dan,

I used to get between 60% and 70% on your exams. Your exams were very helpful. The actual exam is definitely easier than your exams, but they were a great help!
I prepared for SCJP for 3 weeks only. I'm glad I did well!

GOOD SHOW Aarti.

Is it possible for you to give us some tips on preparing for the SCJP exam? Did you study the Java Language Specification to get such a good score?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Vivek,

The JLS is a great reference book, but you wouldn't want to read it cover-to-cover. For example, if you are working through a mock exam and run into something that you don't understand, then the JLS is a great place to find the information that you need.

Thanks guys!

Vivek, I never read JLS. Just practiced with mock exams and when in doubt wrote short code to see actually how it compiles and what output it gave. Made more modifications to the code to see how the compilationa and output changed. Also, I never got such a high score on any of the mock exams.
So, work out as many mock exams as you can! Try and understand the concepts rather than cramming them.

All the best Murtuza!
