    Hi,

    Read HFSJ 2 times thoroughly.

    Go through the APIs and SPECs , so that you don't miss any points that are not covered in HFSJ.

    Take up mock exams from HFSJ, www.examulator.com , www.jdiscuss.com ...

    Then, for final revision , you can read Fredrick Esnault notes , and other notes specified in the scwcd links in this forum.

    All the Best,
    Thanks & Regards,

    In spec study only syntax and rules.
    In API ,you have to only take care of parameters,return values and
    class hierarchies.

    If you are sick of specs and api ,then go to Marcus Green tutorial
    there you can easily find all the stuffs you need for the exam.

    best regards,
    omi

    I have been studying for three months ,one hour daily.

    If you study three or four hours a day ,then you will be able to take
    the exam within 45 five days.

    Some experienced people finish this in only one month.

    So it's up to you how you prepare for the exam.

    best of luck.

    best regards,
    omi
