Hi All,

Presently I am working in a software company in Bangalore. Now I am preparing for SCJP which I think is very much necessary for a Java programmer. But due to strict work schedules I am not able to give ample amount of time for the preparation and like this I am struggling for the last 6 months. I think many in my position have passed SCJP. I wanted to have their valuable suggestions and guidelines in this regard.

Regards
Omkar V S

Omkar,
getting a certification while under a strict schedule can be challenging, but certanly not impossible. One of the tricks is to continuosly dedicate some time to it: by studying just 1 hour every day, I think you can achieve the certification in 3 to 5 months without much problems (it depends a lot on your previous Java experience). The hint here is to do a little bit every day and if you happen to have some free day (like hollidays or week ends) then you can advance a little bit more.
However, getting certificated shouldn't be stressfull, go at your own speed and try to enjoy it (and learn!).

Oh, and get a *truly* good book, like SCJP 5 by Katty Sierra & Bert Bates

Good luck!

Alejandro
