Hello everybody !!
This is my first post.I am also now in the SJCP candidate list as I have decided to give the next twenty days fully to this preparation.I have a little experience in C++ programing but no real experience in java. I have given a reading(almost 75%) to Java complete refernce by Patrick Noughton.This is the preparation strategy I have finally decided. Please comment :
I purchased RHE yesterday and am planning to give a thorough reading but I won't be putting in more than a week.I will spend rest of the time in taking mock tests.
But there are some topics that are not covered properly in RHE like gc etc. Pls advise if there is some source on the net bcos there are'nt any other books availaible here in Delhi.
Thanx for reading
Anurag
P.S. Are there any people from Delhi ?

Well, since you have it already, take the mock exam in the CD-ROM that comes with that book.
One week? Maybe you are a genius in which case congratulations It all depends whether you want to pass with 100% or 71%, I guess...
I think all topics are covered correctly in that book.
