Hi guys,

I took the SCJA yesterday. I don't have much experience in Server Side Java or UML but good exp in Core Java. Following is what I got.

approx 30-35 questions on UML , OO concepts
4 on Enums
1 on programming to interface
1 on threading related with GUI ( No SCJP level questions here)
around 30 questions on Client/Server and other technologies
Rest of the questions on Core Java ( Enhanced for loop included )
No inner classes , Collections , multithreading
1 special kind of question

Some of the UML questions were a bit tricky.But Dave Wood's UML tutorial covers all of them. ( Thanks Dave) . Also I found Enum questions a bit hard. The questions on J2ee and other technologies are straight forward. No code examples involved. However 2 questions on MIDLETS were difficult.

Overall the exam was a good experience.

Best Regards
-Kedar

Not very deep. Issues related with portability of applications written as midlets , there basic use something on these lines would be enough.

I believe it will be enough as the PDF is created by one of the exam authors.

Very elementary questions. Dealing with recognizing the purpose of each and in some you had to recognize to which package function belongs to.
