Hello all, I cleared the SCJP2 exam yesterday. I was hanging out here for some time to get a few doubts cleared. It took me 60 minutes to complete the exam. It is not so tough as advertised. Some advices: 1. Complete the Certification Study guide(RHE) line by line. YOU MAY MISS some important points otherwise. 2. Take the Marcus Green's tests. I found these test papers to be ultimate in quality. They are EXTREMELY close to the real exam. You can find links to these exams from www.javaranch.com/maha 3. Don't rely on your memory power. Better work out many examples. 4. Don't post questions in the forum right away. Try the questions on your own with various combinations.
If anyone wants more specific details, please reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am here to help.. Sathish
