I just pass the exam of SCWD,then next I wanna take the examination of SCJA,but I know little about it.I am poor,so I never buy any materials or take any course on SCJP and SCWD.What can do is to select free information from the internet.But now,I search materials on SCJA for a long time,and didn't find thing useful.So I need help:
1.How hard the exam is?
2.How do I prepare it?
3.Could u give me some resource on it?

1) I can't tell you how hard the exam is since I haven't taken it yet, but from what I've read here, there's a lot of topics you need to know about. The trick is that there are only 48 questions on the exam so they can only ask a few on each topic - but you can't know which ones they'lll ask so you need to know the topics prtty well.
2) I'd recommend reading Sun's Success Guide first, assessing your areas of strength and weakness and studying based on that. Having said that, let me remind you I'm not an SCEA -- still studying myself -- so takeit for what it's worth.
3) We have a resources page with links to most of the stuff you need to know. BTW, if you find more good stuff out there, remember to let us know so we can add it to the page.

Good luck!

You're very welcome!
The great thing about this place is that instead of on eperson trying to find tons of information, there's thousands of us - and when someone finds something they think is useful (or something they think is a waste) they spread the word.
Makes it so much easier on everyone. You still have to learn for youself, but figuring out where to go is much simpler.
Have fun and Good Luck!
