Hello,

I am a beginner java programmer. I am trying to put study materials together for the SCJA exam. I am presently reading HEAD FIRST JAVA which seems to be very helpful in understanding some of the objectives listed on the Sun site. I also visited the SCJA FAQ page listed on this site. The link for the J2ME (J2ME Tutorial: http://java.sun.com/j2me/docs/j2me-ds.pdf) directs you to Sun's site but the Page is no longer found. The site lists
Recommended URLs to try:

Documentation
Reference Documentation
http://java.sun.com/reference/docs/index.html

J2ME
A highly optimized Java runtime environment, J2ME technology specifically addresses the vast consumer space
http://java.sun.com/j2me/index.jsp


The Reference Documentation link takes you to a page with all the platforms listed (J2SE, J2ME, J2EE, etc.) When I select J2ME, there are a lot of different options to choose from. I'm not sure what option is close to what the original link(J2ME Tutorial: http://java.sun.com/j2me/docs/j2me-ds.pdf) was pointing to. Please advise. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated.

Thanks

Hi KiAvaunti,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Here is the link: http://java.sun.com/j2me/j2me-ds.pdf

Short J2ME tutorial: http://developers.sun.com/techtopics/mobility/midp/articles/wtoolkit/

I suggest you download the Whizlabs SCJA Trial version. The trial version is FREE and consists of two portions: Trial (16 questions with answers) and Diagnostic (51 questions without answers).

Took a quick look at the questions (Trial 6.0.1) and found that some were quite similar to the actual one. I don't know about the FULL version; I've never bought a Whizlabs product.

The scope of SCJA is pretty wide, in my opinion. Read the exam objectives very carefully such that you won't overstudy for the exam.

The Sun SCJA website also suggests some supporting materials to read for this exam.

Good luck.

Joyce
