I am Interested in knowing from people who passed the exam on how they prepared for it. i.e. how long it took them to prepare(months), number of hours spent per day,advise on recommended daily study schedules, number of mock exams etc.

I know this varies from person to person, but it would be a good to get an idea.

Thanks
AJ

"Jacob", your displayed name is now half correct. We need two names <first or given name><space><family name> or <initials><space><family name>.
Thanks,

hi,
In my opinion it takes around 2 months of preparation time. I am working as a Software Engineer so daily i would read about half and hour to one hour. I prepared using Khalid Mughal's book and also some other reference materials. But mostly concentrated on Mock Exams' links given at JavaRanch and was able to secure 91%. All the best to you.
