Hi Everyone,

Scored 70-80 generally, with API at 30% hence.

Here are my opinions & tips:
  • I don’t feel this test is about mathematical/logical reasoning. It is mostly about applying Java programming rules. Therefore, it’s really about practising Java programming untill your perfect.
  • I used books “Head First Java” and “Complete Java 2 Certification”. I highly recommend the former but not the latter. I regret not reading “Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide” by K&B, I’ve noticed many people getting over 90% have recommended this particular book.
  • Utilise all the free questions (link), especially the Round-Up game and Devaka’s simulator. The exam prep notes are handy too (link).
  • It’s taken about 2.5 months revision & practising while working 9-5pm, so if you're a student you're looking at least 1.5 months. I recommend waking up 6am and utilising a fresh mind before heading into work if you’re employed.
  • Post a question when in doubt.


  • Many thanks to everyone who answered my doubts, K&B, Devaka. This is a fantastic online forum, completely optimizes why the Internet Internet a great thing

    Ehsan

    PS: Be careful about buying any online pay-for questions, it could be a cunningly well set up scam (I fell into one but got my money back).
