Hi Everybody,
I recently finished my SCJP with 93%. I am interested to take the SCJD exam. I have some basic questions about the exam.
1) Is there a time limit for completing the assignment? How long does it usually take to finish it?
2) What are the concepts one needs to cover to be able to finish the assignment. Please suggest some good books on those topics.
3) Does one need to go deep into design techniques?
Thanx in advance,
Priya

1. There is no time limit.
2. Client/Server Programming, RMI, Object Serialization, Concurrent programming, UI with Swing, data conversion and the use of Javadoc.
3. I think having experience in OOP and OOA will doubtlessly help in the project. But it is not quite critical as a whole.
So don't worry too much, go ahead and take the exam.
But make sure, additional features or functions of your functions will not help much on grading but missing features required will be a fatal mistake. So before starting make sure you have go through the whole instruction file.

Actually I replied on the Sun online doc mainly.
If about books, I would suggest the O' reilly Java Distributed Programming and the Java Swing
They are great and enough for the exam
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
