Passing the SCJP exam requires solving a great number of mock exams as well as practicing the concepts by writing code.

This for sure besides reading the K&B book.

Good luck for the next time.

Regards,

Hi, as you have written, you have studied the book(K&B) twice, but at the same time make small programs. When i was preparing for SCJP1.5 i followed what was written in the book. In the book autor mentioned to make small programs and make notes.

Hi Abhishek
Thank you for guiding me.... I have done many programs(small & big) on most of the topics. I couldn't cover the new Java 5 features. So now I'm stressing more on these topics & doing small programs on these. I will definetly follow your advice & prepare well. Thanks again for your valuable suggestion & time...
