Hi there,
Recently I decided to prepare for the SCJA. After some research on the different possible options for preparation, I decided to work with the following plan (I hope I am not so stupid ) :
1) I will look at the exam objectives in the SCJA exam page. In this page you will find a section called "Exam Objectives". It contains a very detailed list of the subjects covered in the exam.

2) For each subject there, I will study the concepts included by searching as much material as I can find about the subject. I'll search the web and the books that I already have and take my own notes.

3) After studying all subjects covered in the "Exam Objectives" section, I'll purchase the Whizlabs SCJA preparation kit to take the simulated tests.

4) Then I'll go to the test center .

I just wanted to share my plan with you to know whether I am on the right track or what I am doing will be just waste of time.

Thanks for your advice in advance

Hi Kareem,

The link you posted is for the SCJP 6.0 exam, if you plan to take the SCJA exam, the objectives are here. I would recommend you, whichever you take to buy a good book, for SCJP, one of the most recommended books (and one of the most used on the SCJP JavaRanch Forum) is the SCJP 6.0 by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (look it at amazon.com) and it comes with some mock exams, it's really good, I'm not quite sure about a good recommendation for SCJA, but you can search amazon.com and/or ask in this forum for other recommendations.

Regards,

I'd replace steps 1-3 with this book:

Then proceed to step 4.
