Hi ranchers,
At last i will be giving my SCJP 1.5 on coming 10th of April(no option to postpone it again as i have been doing since last few months, my voucher will expire ).There had been preparation from my side, but that was quite on and off. Anyway am having now some 25 odd days to go for it with focused preparation.Am done with course study,so thinking to go for Mocks for the time i am left with.
Any advices and good links that were useful to you all who have already given it,please do suggest.
Shall i go for commercial mocks too? If yes which one helped you most?
Areas which i need to concentrate more?

All advices will be quite helpful.

Thanks again....

Hi Pranav,
Dont worry 25 days is more than enough for study (Final preparation) if you already had done through study.
start solving mock test and after solving the exam dont disappoint of marks if you get less marks at start.
just go through the explanation.
Best of luck for your exam

for commercial mock exams try whizlabs. its harder than the real exam. it'll really test your scjp knowledge and give you a feel for the actual exam.

Hi,

Areas to concentrate? : OOPS concepts would be one, because I remember most questions from OOPS were drag-n-drop type...

javabeat's ebooks are good... Esp for generics (helped a lot )

All the best!!!

(The real exam is easy, codes are shorter and you'll have lots of time)
