Hi Friends,

I cleared SCJP 1.4 today with 75% and the credit goes to K&B book and Javaranch. I actually started preparing just 2 weeks back. So i am happy with the score but obviously could have done better with more preparation.

I would really like to thank Kathy and Bert for their excellent book.
Also i would like to thank ranchers for clearing my doubts.

These are the few things i did for preparing in 2 weeks.

1st week:
1) K & B Book (spent hours with this book in Borders(book store)
2) Other resources from the net.

2nd week:
1) spending most of the time on Javaranch
2) All the mock tests posted on this site.
3) Especially Dan's Tests were amazing
4) Marcus Tests helped a lot.


Cheers
Usha.

Hi Usha,

Congrats on clearing the exam in such a short time. ACTUALLY I AM ALSO IN THE SAME BOAT. I just started preparing last week and i have exam in 5 days.

Please let me know what kind of mistakes you did with your short prep and what you could have improved given a chance so that i can too concentrate.

Also did u completely do all DAN's 560 + questions. How was the Marcus Green exam when compared to actual exam. Any surprises and hints,Please lt me know.

thanks
David

Hi David,

Yes, I did ALL the questions from Dan's test.. But i didnt realize that they will be tough if I would have more time i would have really tried to concentrate more on the questions and also would have tried to read K&B book one more time..

I would suggest you to read K&B book perfectly, keep track of the questions on the forum.. and do Dan's test early.. level of difficulty of Marcus Tests is close to the actual test.

Good Luck!!
Usha.
