Hi folks,
I want to let you know that I cleared my SCJP exam today with 92%! I can't emphasize how vital this forum was for me in my preperations and the role it played in my exam itself! Although I knew Java concepts, my preperation for the exam was only for 10 days and I thrived on this site for help.
A BIG THANK YOU to all the folks who post their questions here and to those who provide those wonderful explanations to them! It really, really helped!! HAving gone through the exam questions, I can't help feeling tthat I could have done better. But 92% for a 10 day preperation is fine with me and I'll take it any time of the day!!
To those who are preparing for the exams with the help of this site, I have just one word. YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK!!
I promise to visit this site as often as I can and provide my inputs, learning from you all at the same time.
Loads of gratitude,
Srikrish

Pragya,
About the materials that I used...
RHE was a goos way to start. I also referred to Core Java Vol II by Cay Horstmann and Gary Cornell. It's got good explanations for Threads and Collection, List, Set, etc. All my other study materials involved dwelling on this site for hours together and going thru' all the discussions, past and present. I got to know a lot of intricate points this way which really helped during the exam.
About tips...
Try writing as much code as possible to try out different possibilities and learn from the results. Take all the mock exams mentioned in Maha Anna's page here. Draw up a table of the different types of streams and readers with their use, constructors and read methods. This really helped me in understanding the different streams and readers. Get to know the API specs for important classes well.
One final tip..never lose heart. Keep trying!
Good luck for your exam.
Srikrish.
