Hi Nagesh! Welcome to Javaranch.

What do you mean by coding skills?? I don't get it. Do you mean coding standards or speed and accuracy of coding??

Gemerally, the best way to improve coding skills, is to actually write code. Why not pick one of the hobbies that you like, and write a tool for it?

Do lots of coding practices. I would suggest using IDEs like eclipse, because it'll save your time because it'll report compilation errors during coding only. I don't know whether others will support this idea or not.

I will not support it. If you code using a simple text editor, it will help you become a better coder (I wanted to say programmer here but then I thought and...). This will help you to notice small things in syntax that you might miss if you use an IDE. This is my thought and again people may disagree...

I will suggest you following points:

  • As Henry suggested code a lot.
  • Always try to find out which way is better to code. You can see an example hereweb page
  • If possible try to spend some time in understanding source code.
  • Try to learn design patterns as better solutions of so many problems are already available.
  • Implement whatever you have learned. Just don�t keep them shut in your head.

    Given that this is the SCJP forum I would say:

    - Ankit is correct - don't use an IDE to study for the SCJP
    - Write a lot of test code - when you find an interesting mock exam question, type it in yourself, compile it, test it, change it, experiment with it - most mock exam questions contain the kernel of at least one important Java concept.

    hth,

    Bert

    I am agree with Himanshu Gupta.

    and to your career study refactoring is a technical that help improve your code and skills to write too.
