I have just taken a MOCK test on the internet, and there was a lot of I/O stuff !!! But in the book i have "Complete Java 2 Certification" they tell me, that there is no testing on I/O on the SCJP2, is this correct ???
I/O is part of the current SCJP test. However, the next version of the test for the 1.4 JDK, due out some time this summer, has dropped I/O and AWT from the requirements. Search this forum with "1.4 Beta Test" for more details.
I have just started preparing for the certification and planning to take in third week of July. Do you think, i should wait until new test comes and then take it, or just go head with present plan. Thanks Praveen.

Well, I can't really tell you what is best for you. The new test is not officially out yet, so until it is you really can't count on it being available at a certain time. If you want to get certified by a particular date, you may just want to go ahead and take the old test to make sure you make your date. It's up to you. If you want to wait for the new version, it might simplify the objectives you need to study, since I/O and AWT are no longer covered. However, you may have to learn the core concepts in greater detail since there will be more questions asked on them in the new test.
