Sanjeev,
I would like to remind you that proper names are required for participation in JavaRanch. Please read the JavaRanch naming policy.
Thanks

Well, I DO know that the SCJP2 Exam Cram does cover the topics needed in SCJD2. Also, the RHE book has approx. the last 1/3 dedicated to the SCJD. I am currently reading that and it's enlightening. Not sure if that will translate into a good score, but it's certainly a start.
With Respect,
Matt

Hi Matt --
Thanks indeed for mentioned 'RHE' and the work we've done to help with the Developer's Exam. I'm actually quite pleased at your assessment of the section; I didn't really set out to write out a how-to for the Dev Exam, and that obviously shows. Perhaps we could have taken a more "comforting" approach.
What I really wanted to do to prepare candidates was *not* show them how to write to assignment; rather, I wanted to show candidates how to justify the assignments they complete. That aspect of the exam -- the essay portion -- struck me as the hard part. You have to write down what is was you did and why you did things that way, so having a way to think about your solution seemed like the important thing to support.
If I can be any help in working through the exam, I'll answer what I can. In the spirit of the SCJP, I won't give away any secrets (if there are any), but I'll be a relentless instructor. No answers, just guidance.
Thanks again for noting our book!
