I am in two minds about whether to go in for SCWCD or SCBCD. Any suggestions are welcome!

Hi Varsha,
Here's my recipe:
1) Daily trip(s) to JavaRanch.
2) Enthuware.com mock exam set
3) Khalid Mughal or K&B book thorough reading

As for the pattern of the exam, its similar to the mock exams available online, especially the ones from Enthuware's JQPlus!
There are 61 questions with 2 hours for solving them. Normally, you should be able to solve the questions in max 75 mins.

Last but not the least,
go for a movie/pub before exam day and RELAX!!!
Best of luck!

Hi Kedar,

I got the K&B's book which mentions that it is for exam 310-035 and 310-027.I donno if this is the correct book as the first chapter itself starts with a objective which is not in SUN's objectives for SCJP 1.4.

Amit, ****** questions are believed to be a source of real questions. That is CHEATING. If you wish to cheat then do not do it through JavaRanch posts.
Thankyou

Yeah Amit, Barry's right.
There's no need to resort to stuff like ******* for clearing the SCJP exam with good marks. You would only be cheating yourself by doing that.
All you need is the K&B book and a few good mock exam sets, mentioned in the earlier posts here.

Hi Dravid,

Well Done! Keep the same spirit.
All the best for your SCWCD/SCBCD, whichever you write.

Can you just tell me online mock exams sites for SCJP? Or anyone?

Thanks and Regards,
Narendranath (Preparing for SCJP)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
