Hi Ranchers,

I am planning to take the SCJP 5 in 2 days time. I have just glanced the K & B book. I do have prior knowledge on java but Generics and Threads make me paranoid. I would be glad if anybody could throw some light on my queries.

a) Will the paper/working sheets be provided by the prometric centre?
b) Are the Questions covered by K & B sufficient?
c) I am told the exam time for SCJP has been reduced to 120 mins from 190 mins. So is it sufficient to answer all the questions?

Thanks in advance for your replies and wishes(I need them badly ).

regards,
Karthik

a) Some centers provide working sheet/transparencies/markers etc, while some dont. Best is to take it with you and use it if they don't provide anything.
We advise candidates to check a center out before selecting that center for the test. Some centers are too noisy or have bad (small) monitors.

b) Most of the people feel that they are sufficient, but some people think they are not on some topics. Best is to take lots of mock exams, specially, if you are not thoroughly reading any book. That way you will cover all types of questions on all topics.

c) I haven't seen anyone complaining about the time. If you know the stuff, you have enough time.

Best of Luck!!!

I would check out the test center too. I went into one here in Winchester VA and it was NOISY. They rented office space and the person in the next cubical kept getting real estate calls, another turned on her radio, and other people were having converstaions in the (their) offices. I asked the radio person to turn it off but she said this is my office.

I got a piece of scratch paper about 6 inches square and they said I could ask for more if I needed it. Didn't want me to use my own etc ... My test cubical was quite comfy except for the noise. Cool, well lite, except very noisy.
