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.
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!
