Hi All,
I am preparing for SCJP 1.4 and already completed khalid mughul and whizlabs kit. I am scoring well in whizlab kit with average score of 80%. I am just browsing mock exams available on net and found Dan Chisholm mock test really tough and harder as compared to other mocks and is scoring only 60-70% in that.
Can anyone suggest if my preparation is ok w.r.t. things I covered. I am planning to give exam next week.

Yes, I have experience in java. I started with khalid book and did topic-wise test of whizlabs. After that, I appeared in for practice test and other online tests available. Still, I am not getting confidence for real exam as I am not able to cross 70-80% benchmark for either of test. Any whizlabs user please suggest if that is enough for preparation. Thanks,

Hi,
You can visit the linkto get the details for whizlabs SCJP 1.4 kit. Khalid mughal is an excelent book for SCJP 1.4. You can also go for Kathy and Bert's book.

I took four of Dan Chisholm's comprehensive tests. I got 62%, 55%, 48% and 59% on them. I think they are very hard and not representative of actual SCJP exam.

Today i gave SCJP 1.4 and cleared it with 90% marks. Overall, I found exam easier than mock exams. I studied Khalid Mughul and brought Whizlabs kit.After covering these, I went through mock exams mentioned in javaranch forum.I scored 10% more than what I used to score in whizlabs final/practice exams.
Now looking forward for SCWCD exam. Thanks to all for your support and help.

I am really confused between choosing next certification out of SCWCD or SCDJWS. I have good experience in Servlets/JSP, so my friends are suggesting me to go for SCDJWS (which will make my resume balanced) but I don�t know ABC of web services. What are the factors I should look into while giving certification. What is market trend and which is in more demand?
