Hi Jart,
Well i read K & B twice. I experimented regularly with the examples and exercises given in the book. Other than that i had a look at about 150 sample questions which was very useful! The exam is pretty easy, if you look carefully at every choice and then decide your answer confidently.I must say K & B's book is superb and it can easily get you a decent score if you understand every bit of it.

My advice to all newcomers is go through it at least twice understanding everything, practice and experiment a lot. Solve some sample questions once. And you will be perfectly ready to take on SCJP.

Cheers

Thanks Nadeem!! Really good advise taken from you! I'm determined to take the SCJP 1.6 by April but honestly I'm facing very difficult study schedule because of my job and also can't afford to buy those mock exams for purchase.

I tried to take on some mock exams available online and currently not doing good on the major topics I know will be heavily taken on the exam itself.. Well, I guess I'll just have to study further and try to put more effort practicing and experimenting on all of the topics.

Thanks so much and congratulations!! More success on your coming certifications!!

You are welcome buddy.Just give your best shot, relax and take the exam confidently. Good luck preparing.

p.s: Google out free question papers. You will find them, though not sure about new features @ 1.6.
