My question is how much job experience in core java, if at all is required to pass the exam? Well SUN rceommends atleast 6 months.
I have attempted once without any experience and faced the failure, and now have waited almost 4 months to get any work on core java. Its frustrating me as i am loosing my knowledge on core java.
Shall i start preparation again myself, without any job experience? Please suggest!! Sorry for the long mail!! Thanks!

I don't think work experience is mandatory to clear SCJP. But practical knowledge in java does help. I am a 3rd year ECE student and cleared the exam on the 16th of this month. I believe writing a lot of codes will help a lot even if one does not have any work experience. Whatever mentioned above is solely my point of view.I might be (horribly) wrong. Regards, Rahul
I agree with Rahul. You do need Java experience, but you don't need Java work/professional experience. Work experience does help, of course. But it's not at all essential. I too know college students who took and passed the SCJP without any professional experience.
