I haven't seen many posts here about people who recently passed the exam, so to give hope to others I wanted to post.

I took the exam on Jan 18th and passed with a 92%. There were some tricky questions, but if you use the exam guidelines to prepare nothing is really that complicated.

Best of luck to others taking the exam.

Congrats Dave. That is a really nice score. Esspecially since it is a new exam and there is little out there about it.

Thank you for posting Dave. I am taking the test this weekend. Any last minute advice you can offer about any topic that gave your grief or any other friendly advice. What is giving me some problems admitedly is all the different parts of J2EE. The OO concepts and java fundmentals are not too difficult so that is what I am currently going over a few more times before the exam.



Moderators please do not move this post posting to the exam results category. There are so few people that take part in this topic that we need to let everyone know that we are out there and studying like they are.

Hi Dave
congrats for your great result

i was wondering if i could ask you a question about the J2ME section of
the exam :
is it enough to read the J2me datasheet(mentioned in the javaranch recomended reading for the certeification)
to cover the j2ME questions in the exam
or there is some other resources you think that is more useful?
thanks for help
and good luck

From what I have seen from the ePractice exams from Sun all you need to know is what is on the pdf linked to on the FAQ. They seem to just be looking for if you know what J2ME is used for and if you understand the concepts of profiles.


the link so you don't have to search for it:

Yes, study wide - but not too deep. You only need to know what each technology is, and where it is to be used.

Hi Bob
Hi Peter
Hi everyone in this great site
thank you all for your great interest
but am still until now a little bit confused about waht does fit strongly
to the Exam objectives
i have got the pdf book called "j2ME in a nutshell" and it's first part
has a breif description about the main festures in this platform
is it suitable to read that section to cover all of the J2ME part of SCJA exam
thanks to everyone
good luck

the pdf on J2ME will cover more than you need to know for the exam. Just know that it has three layers JVM, configuration, and profile. Also know what devices use J2ME applications. Know that the UI is limited due to the platform in which the appications are run on. Know that the applications are also known as MIDP - Mobile Information Device Profile applications. You should know that they are developed on desktops and use a special toolkit to test and deploy. Seriously there is not much detail you really need to know on it from what I have seen.

Congratulations Dave!

Perhaps you don't see these results posted in this forum because we have a separate Certification Results forum for that purpose. In fact, I will move this thread there as soon as I figure out how
