Hi friends

I cleared SCJP 1.4 today with 96% ( 59/61). 15 days back from today i took my first mock exam from sierra bates and got FAIL as per the status of exam. It opened my eyes earlier i was thinking SCJP is cakewalk.. i was overconfident. now in 15 days whatever time i got to study (remember i m working) , i read as many messages as i can at SCJP forum which really helped me.. I wont say thanks to anybody here as that is inferior way of reciprocating of what you all have done for me..you all helped me like a family.. I am not so rich to repay all those who have helped me right now.. but yea if i have money in future, i shall donate to keep this forum going..
and pls dont say congrats .i know u all are there with me during my preparation and now also in this celebration time..
Now my suggestions for those giving the exam
1) Fundamental Classes
2) Collections
i lost 1 question in each of these areas.. so 59/61.
dont solve tough questions .. SCJP test ONLY basic concepts concepts which are fundamental.. keep this in mind ALWAYS.. sierra and bates exams( i took 2 complete exam) were closest to the real exam.
Anything else u want to know, pls pls feel free to ask..
Thanks (oops! i said it

K&B is Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates book
Thats the best book for SCJP, it conforms to the SCJP standard.
U can also go for Khalid Mughal, the content in Mughal's book is more than that in K&B and also few chapters are better given.
But i guess the standard of questions in main exam is very much similar as given in K&B.

Thanks Animesh,

I contacted Animesh via email, to get some clarification regarding k&b (now im used to terms) and he's ready to offer his book to me for preparation. (Will sure return him after i clear SCJP)

Its a great way of motivation, for upcoming Ranchers like me.

Hi all,

williams,jay, Whats next? probably i will decide after a meeting with my friends... which depends on company policy as well. If company sponsors another test, i will go for SCBCD.. let see its too early.. but i will be on the forum always..only my frequency of apperance will keep changing

deshdeep divakar, for weakness in any particular section, post the question. but to build strategy read below.
strategy
-------
whatever question u solve, dont check answers immediately
following these rules
1) Mark the option u feel is correct
2) Do this for all questions of a mock test/series
3) Then find out which all questions went wrong (dont see the right answer)
4) reattempt those questions which went wrong
5) till u give up your last mental strength or till u get all right yourself,u will go to step 3 again and again.
6) here u know that u dont know the why a particular answer even with the best of your intelligence couldnt solve it. look at the explanation given by the solution guide of that test
7) try hard to understand.. still not understood it time for external help. go to javaranch!
8) dont post question immediately. use search feature and try to find answer.. some one has already posted the detailed explanation and u can just read it direcly u save time of yours and others.
9) u couldnt find the answer using search feature of javaranch. frame a precise question and post it
10) follow rules laid by javaranch moderators..
11) also answer back to others if possible..
12) DONT BYHEART ANYTHING. UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING.
-----------
Mohan mani,Amit, thats the purpose of posting this good news..

rathiji, we all including you are real classmates here at Javaranch..

mi mohammed, yes i am passionate person. u r good at knowing people from distance

sorry if i have missed anybody's questions or good wishes given to me..
thanks
