hi all java gurus, today i passed the SCJP2 with 78%.it helped me a lot visiting this site.had i visited it earlier i might ve got good score cos such sites help a lot.but it is better late than never. guidelines to test takers. ------------------------------ 1.be clear about concepts--- i used RHE &HERBERT SCHILDSZ. 2.try to solve as much tests as possible.they give u confidence to handle tests.(marcus green, ibm,khalid,abhilash,boone,jchq) 3.be fearless while solving test.don't confuse.stick to rules. 3.one additional thing that i didn't follow is to refer ERRATA.if u don't, it is confusing to see two different concepts. TRY OUT is a good practice which also i didn't follow much. 4. take a good sleep before the test. 5. don't worry much about mock tests scores.use them as practice tool.but always try to improve ur performance . FOR THOSE WHO R ABSOLUTELY FRESHERS IN THIS FIELD. don't worry.i haven't done C,C++.YOU CAN BE PREPARED WITHIN TWO MONTHS. -------------------- FINALLY BEST OF LUCK TO ALL TEST SEEKERS. MY SINCERE THANKS TO JAVARANCH. -------------------------------
Contrats Vibhav! I would like to emphasize the following for test-takers
Read atleast two certification guides. The more you read the better you will understand the concepts. Well, you don't have to buy all of them, go to a bookstore near you and spend some evenings there!
When you don't understand something, write code and try it out.
If you want to repeat mock exams, do so atleast after 3-4 days of gap, so that your answers don't come out of your memory, but from your understanding of the concepts.
If you repeat mock exams, make sure you don't repeat the same mistakes you did the time before. If you see yourself losing the same question again and again, then that is your weak area. Go back and read the books(s) again.
Don't spend toomuch time on any question in the exam. More than a minute per question in the first round is not good. Remember you can always come back to any question.
Hope this helps all SCJP aspirants! Ajith [This message has been edited by Ajith Kallambella (edited July 14, 2000).]
