Started studying around 1 month+ ago, but only really ramped up since last Saturday, when I bought the K&B book.

I'm going to throw in another vote for the K&B book and the Whizlabs software. They really help a great deal. Previously I was reading "SCJP Exam for J2SE 5 - A Concise and Comprehensive Study Guide for The Sun Certified Java Programmer Exam". It's really a concise guide, as there are many things missing in that book that I didn't know until I read K&B.

My Preparations for the last 1.5 weeks
  • Read through the K&B book once, writing notes on 3"x5" cards for things to take note
  • Tried out 3 Whizlabs quizzes yesterday and 1 quiz this morning (at 4.30am!!!)

  • 1 diagnostic, 2 practice and the final quiz, score increased consistently from 71%, 72%, 78%, 82% (and 87% for actual exam).
  • Read through my notes and the K&B 2-min drills on the bus journey to exam centre.

  • (Finished reading the bus stop before alighting. What great timing )

    Once again, kudos to the authors of K&B and the makers of Whizlabs software. Now I can finally play with my iPod Touch that I have with me since Monday.
