Yesterday i cleared the SCJP
exam and thanks to the Java
Ranch, Marcus Green and others who is providing the resources and mock tests. I have been preparing for this exam since 2 weeks. I have Java programming background for about an year. But, there are lots of issues you never come across like the ones in the SCJP.For that, you need a good certification bok. I read only Robert & Heller, nothing else. While i am learning Java, i have read Java Programming Language(From Sun source), Java FAQ(From Sun) Sun java tutorial and Core Java. The exam is not that difficult. There are a mixture of easy questions and hard ones.
Good luck for everybody who is preparing.
