Have some simple questions.
1. First part of SCJP, assignment completement time is no limit, then is it OK that i take the assignment firt, use long time(several month) to study the case, then hand up ?
2. What kind of the assay question in second part ? is it hard to pass it ?
3. Are there anyone to take the SCJD exam failed ? or everyone take it can pass ?
4. How Deeply need i grasp the Java ? I have get more than one year java programming experience, did JDBC/RMI/GUI before. I wanna know how much i still need to learn and how deep need to learn ?
5. In assignment, use pure JDK to do , or can use IDE like JBuilder, Visual Age, Forte ... Will it effect my socre.
6. A extra question: if you use pure jdk to develop java application(not IDE), you use JDB debug the applicaion or other ?
Sorry for asked so many questions. Waiting for your kind answer !

Roy,
This is not a hard assignment. It just extends your learning into Swing and RMI. You've done RMI. You've done GUI (Swing is a step up from there). You've done Java for a year. Go for it! It is my understanding that the essay questions are short (some people finished in 15 minutes.) They ensure your neighbor didn't code the assignment for you. I'm using JBuilder (Forte bites!) As long as the code generated doesn't depend on IDE classes (like VisualCafe likes to do) you are fine.
Good Luck

hi, Scott,
really appreciate your kind answer.
up to the exam form, even a green hand of java can make sufficient preparation for the assignment, and do it all by self at last. from this point, is it too easy to pass the SCJD ? so i wander if anyone failed in SCJD exam ?
Roy
