Hi ALL,

I'm a working professional and I had only 10 days to prepare for the exam.
I also don't have much of experience in java.

I referred only two books.
SCJP by Cathy Sierra and Bert Bates.(ITS AWESOME...)
and
Programmer's Guide to Java Certification by Khalid Mughal and Rolf Rasmussen.(you'll postpone the date of your exam after reading this book..)

Hats off to the authors of these books.
My advice to the test takers, "Passing is not all that difficult ... Scoring is .. " so practice ...
Take as many mock exams as possible. That'll help a lot.

I personally felt that I could have scored much more had I had more time..

Thanks Kathie & Bert ...
Thank you all ....

Hi Rajendra

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Well.. 27 days are more than sufficient I guess.

Be thorough with K&B .. Every line is important.

And also go through Khalid mughal .. Its a very good book .. It gives you loads of information ..
But everything is not necessary from the certification point of view.

K&B precisely covers all the topics.

After you are done with material.. then take up Mock exams ..

SCJP is all about practice..
You can score really well if you practice mock exams...

I personally felt I could have done better ..

If you want any help do let me know ..

Regards,

Niranjan Shetty
