Hi all,

I would like to know what are the areas to be really worked upon for first timers like myself. I have been involved with java programming for sometime and am very much confident with the basics.. however when i looked upon the test objectives.. i did find the client server technologies an area of deeper study.

there's only a month to prepare for the test.. and i also hear that the certification is going to be based on how we perform in comparison to all those taking part..

So should a first timer like me.. sit for the SCJA or prepare for the SCJP instead...

Also, references for the test preparation.. will be highly welcomed..

thanks all..
Sukal..

hi,

SCJA covers 20% of SCJP, ok, you nee to concentrate on lot J2EE tech, JMS, Webservices &UML, so first cover this to get SCJA success, dont mingle both.

Hi Faris,

Thankz for your response, however, could u let me know how much in depth must one study the J2EE concepts, Web Services n all...
Is test goin to be an objective or a subjective one? Application or Coceptual understanding based?

Thanks again..

based on the objectives listed....objectively conceptual. If that makes any sense. I believe there will be little programming involved but based on the objectives you need to at least be able to compile some code from the command line and if you've compiled code you should be able to look at code for say RMI, JSP, or JavaMail and be able to understand it somewhat.

Short answer: we don't know.
