Ten days Preparation--- Ten chapters

ALL HAIL Kathy Siera & Bert Bates !!

My score is not so good but thats all due to lack of practicals!!
as i have gone through only theoretical concepts .
So scored less in Generics and API contents section !!



As about book --
i have not found any other book so focused on Exam !!
but a lot of topics and methods are missing in KS & BB book which may be not in objectives but needed to understand the problem !!
Like there's no detail about date parse method .(it is covered in just one line);
and i have got 3 question related to that method .
and some other methods like setMAXfractiondigits and related methods
:roll:

So friends if you gonna attempt SCJP 1.5 then do take brief look at
JAVA API specification and JAVA Language Specification
Along with
KAthy siera & Bert Bates SCJP 1.5 BOOk.

Exam is really easy ...but you need to have practical experience to solve the problems .( I have skipped KS & BB book Exercises and thats the biggest mistake i have done in my preparations So DOn do it )

now i am gonna prepare for SCMAD
but surely thats gonna take more than 10 dayz

Thanks Yanuar and Raghavan

I have started looking for notes and books in november and then i came to know about javaranch and really happy to see that there's a full fledged community devoted to JAVA religion.

I want to know one thing that
IS 1.4 is easier than 1.5 ?
as last week one of my friend scored 92% in 1.4.
