countless thanks to all javaranchers for the brilliant posts that helped me so much on preparing for the exam......Really....No doubt....I couldn't make it without this forum....

Special thanks to K&B and D.Cooray for their great works that have helped so many programmers passing the exam

Now, it's time to hunt SCJD down (really....really....down).....

Thankyou my friends... ...so glad to hear your replies..... this achievement couldn't be made without any help from this forum

well Hukm..overall, I guess working hard, smartly, and patiently is the key here..I read K&B three times thoroughly, each time I read every chapter, I did some practises(coding) to verify the given material and to clear any doubts. Practically, I think reading K&B by itself isn't enough, you HAVE TO code, as that will open your eyes to some tiny details not covered in the book.
After I feel I have covered and memorized all the topics, then it's time for mocks....I did the mocks that comes from the book and ExamLab. The first mock from the book I got 93%, but at the second one, I got only 75%, and at final exam I got 84%. Doing the examlab, I got 80%, 75%, 63%, and 59% starting from the first exam to final respectively. Every time I did a mock, I do some evaluation, I list every mistake I made, memorized it, and try hard not to do the same mistake at the following mocks. Note that the mocks I mentioned above are tougher than the real exam (especially the final exam of ExamLab), so don't be discouraged when you didn't get a good score at those mocks. after finishing a total of 7 mocks, then I did the very same mocks for another round without remembering any I question I've ever done before, and I observe that my scores are stable at 88-95%. this facts boost up my confidence and then I know that time has come for the real exam. In short, my preparation is an iteration of 3 phase: LEARN --> PRACTICE --> EVALUATE

this kind of preparation methodology took me almost 5 months before I called Sun, that's why I said that patience is one of the key to succeed.

Ok Hukm and all SCJP hunters..I wish you all a good luck for the exam, I believe you will manage it well... don't forget to take some rests and good sleeps while preparing...

Good luck,
Khomeini

Niharika i think you are going for the certificate and not Java. If that is the case then --- will help you.
Here at javaranch we dont talk about --- and neither we support it.I am preparing for the second time, for scjp,,, and want to learn java and i think it is the same for you too. hope you dont mind my words. All the best do well
