Hello,
Almost a year ago I studied for SCJP 6 exam from the book Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 by KathySierra and Bert Bates. The exam I took was the upgrade exam and I passed with 81%.

I have close to 15 years of professional experience and I am more interested in the learning process itself. The reason I am interested in the learning process is because when I was young, I had very poor study habits and I had the worst habit of all - procrastination. This has caused me to develop a phobia for any examination.

I came across Walter Pauk and his method called Cornell Note Taking System and I used this strategy (I could have done a better job) to take notes and appear for the upgrade exam. I passed. The score is not that great. But, I was relaxed going for the exam, and for the first time I was totally relaxed while taking the exam. This I attribute to the study process and the notes I took. Also I the feeling that I was well prepared going into the exam hall - a first in my life.

Again it has taken me a year to get myself to post the link to the notes here.

I am thinking these notes might be helpful to someone out there, especially the method : Cornell Note Taking System.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the authors Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for writing a highly readable book.

Thank you
Mahanthi

I have been studying for the test for a while, on and off, been able to read through K&B book 3 times. Even though I feel that I could learn something new everytime when I go through each chapter, I know I needed a quicker way to be able get the whole picture quicker. Mahanthi's note is a perfect thing for me to get the important points and also have a good bigger picture. I did not go into the details yet, but I started liking it already. Thanks Mahanthi for posting it.
