Hi Folks...

I cleared my SCJP 1.4 with 96%. Thanks to Kathy and Bert, I also referred to Khalid Mughal, Rasmussen. Solved mock exams by Dan Chisholm,Marcus Green , from the books referred and some of the exams listed by Maha Anna. Thanks to all who provided the exams and free material. I would also like to thank the forum for providing useful links to material and mock exams.

I got 86% in Marcus Green exam, the day before I took exam. The actual exam was not very tough. Got one wrong on Garbage collection and Threads each. The mock exams and a review before submitting the test really helps.

Wishing everybody Good Luck for their upcoming exams.

Thanks,
Hemant.

and thought of solving its questions given at end of chapter and mock exams in its cd...

Hi Amit...

sorry for the delay...

well...i am also a working guy...and i studied for the exam after my work hours...and on weekends...though i have been working in java...

I would suggest you that start first with K&B...solve the questions given at the end of the chapter properly...K&B should be enough if you are short of time...but after you are done with this...and have enough time...go through Khalid Mughal...

if you are specific abt the topics as to what should be read from Khalid Mughal...i wud suggest - operators, flow control and exceptional handling,inner classes,object oriented programming and java.lang...try to study the whole book...it is also a good book...

u cud give Dan's exams topic wise...tht wud help you understand the topic better...Dans exams are a great help...

In the real exam...questions are mixed up...but when u think tht u are prepared...give mock exams...instead of section wise questions...

I hope all this helps...

lemme know if you require any more details...

Good Luck...!!!

Hemant.

Thanx a ton Hemant..


Actually till now i have read K&B book once and given its all chapter end exams... and cleared all doughts of all questions i answered wrong..

what i m doing is revicing each and every chapter ... giving its chapter end exam once more... i m getting almost all right and giving DAN exam chapter wise....

I have reserved full mock exams of K&B and khalid mughal for final testing of my prepration.. and other full mock exams availble on internet...


Now i have only 10 days of holidays left ....for prepration...
so confused... about reading khallid mughal book full ..

I think what should i do is to read the topic u told me...and give the chapter end exams ..so i can come to know what khallid mughal..is all about ... and is there is any need to read its chapter additionally...

what do u think friend... ?


any way... where r u working ? and how much expierience you have in industry... from which state u belong ..."acchaai mumbia" as i think u r maharshtrian..

any way...
thanx for reply

regards,
amit



please any other scjp can contribute thier suggestion for prepration startergy.... .....
