Hey dudes,

I`m from Germany. I read a lot of information about the SCJP! But my question is, what are the premises for SCJP? Do I have the SCJA to do SCJP or can I do the SCJP without any premises?

Thanks and greetings...ralf

We can directly give SCJP without the need to give SCJA or any other criteria.

This is from the official website

Details

Prerequisites: 6-12 months of experience
Other exams/assignments required for this certification: None

A good estimate is somewhere between 2 weeks and 2 years.

The wide range is because it depends on so many variables: How much experience you have with Java and/or some other language, your general aptitude, how much time you're able to devote to preparation, what resources you use, etc.

For example, if you're an experienced programmer that's been working in Java for the past few years and are able to prepare fulltime for the exam, then you could be ready within a couple of weeks. On the other hand, if you're brand new to programming and can only spare a few hours a week... Well, that's going to take some time.

"casper_olsen,"

Your display name does not quite meet the JavaRanch Naming Policy. If you could just replace the underscore with a space, that would be great!

You can edit your display name here.

Thank you for your prompt attention!

Regarding naming, why does casper_olsen sign of with "Thanks and greetings...ralf"?

Doh! I didn't even notice that.

casper/ralf, please take a close look at the naming policy I provided a link for above, and adjust your display name accordingly. Thanks!

The Premise of SCJp in a nutshell is that given a code snippet of varying difficulty you can understand what is going on and determine the right output.
What it wont give you is the ability to translate software requirements and specs into a working software application as this is something that requires actual hands on experience.
