Hi there

Hope you guys can help answer some of my questions. I am thinking of taking this certification, having done the SCJP years ago and am just wondering what commitment is involved.

Is there any useful or recommended training material for this certification? Or is it straight jump into the project and code?

Also, to get an idea, how long does the project take to do for the average person working on it after hours?

Are the specifications quite exact?



Many thanks
iva

Hi Iva,

First of all welcome to the JavaRanch!

Did you already have read the ScjdFaq? It contains a lot of valuable information for SCJD beginners.

Kind regards,
Roel

Hi Iva,

Another thing you could do, is have a read of the stories of ranchers who passed the scjd already. In my signature you'll find a link to my story (what resources did I use, how did I handle the assignment, ...). Other stories you can find through the ScjdWallOfFame.

Kind regards,
Roel

Fantastic thank you. The 4 to 5 months that you spent on it, was that a few hours every day? Weekends?

Combining it with a full time job it was mainly a few hours in the evening and the weekends. But of course not every evening or every day in the weekend
