Hi Everybody,

I just passed SCJP 1.4 this morning with 86% marks.

Wanted to share my preparation steps-

>Only K & B is sufficient for the exam preparation.it is a very good book.
>Read this book atleast twice.

>Make notes of important points and keep going thro' them so that they remain in your mind.

>Give proper time to get through 2-minutes drill after each chapter.

>Go through Exam watch points in between chapters. Try to keep them in mind.

>Go throygh the sites as-

*Marcus green mok test
*Dan topicwise questions
*Round up game at javaranch(As starting of mock exams)
*exforsys.com
*javaprepare.com
*Khalid Mughal mock test
*Keep looking questions posted on forum and try to solve them

>Atleast study 2-2.5 months seriously..if you know litttle of java and not working on java as your primary skill.

>i scored 70-72% in marcus green, 80% on K&B masters exam.

Lastly....try to code more and more. It actually makes things more clear.

All the best to all SCJP 1.4 Aspirants.

Good Luck!!!

~Kirti

You are right. But when I gave my Whizlabs mock exams, I was scoring in the mid sixties and seventies and the real exam was a bit easy that I expected. So as always, practice as many questions as you can and nail your basics very strongly!
