greddy, Welcome to the Ranch. You are in the right place Read atleast two books( the more the better, ) do all mock exams( try to score more than 90% ), and come to the Ranch atleast once a day. Ask questions, try to answer questions posted by others. Good luck( and hope to see you around ) Ajith

Barry Boone 1.1 is good. It helped me significantly for the Java 2 exam. But I would also recommend: The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide by Simon Roberts, et al (Hardcover - July 1999) Amazon.com Price: $34.99 Java 2 (Exam Cram) by Bill Brogden, William B. Brogden (Paperback ) Amazon.com Price: $23.99 I really don't think you'd need anything more. Sure, you should also take good mock exams available for free on the Web. And if you have a lot of money, you could buy the commercially available preparation tools. We have both types of tools listed here in http://www.javaranch.com/mock.html

Greedy, One thing I followed during the preparation was made a note of each and every mock test I took in a text file. This really helped me to gauge where I stand. I started from the easier ones and and latter with the medium and harder ones. These are the point I noted. Date&time /MockExamName /totQstns /totCorrect /%got /which area to studymore/ what mistakes made/ what learnt new/ In my opinion this growth chart REALLY REALLY helps to see us ourself as a third person. regds maha anna
