hi guys, i am new to this discussion forum.i want to do the java certification but i dont have enough knowledge about the process.
I am a computer student n persuing my MCA in pune.i went through many institutes but they offer java courses only.
Do any of you know any institute which trains for SCJP, i know java and i am familiar with the same. I can prepare on my own, so want to know about the preparation materials,books,cds any simulators or so.If you can provide me the book names then it will be very helpful for me.
I hope you guys will help me in this......

Thanks
Saurabh

Try to grab the ones by Khalid Mughal, K & B and Head First Java.

Write as many sample programs around common topics.

Do the exercises at the end of each chapter.

Once through with books (almost 70% topics), search for mock exams, certification dumps and participate in the forums to learn that extra bit.

You can also set a time frame for getting certified and purchase the voucher before hand (say 8-9 months). This will get you going.

Hi Saurabh,

Welcome to JR, I Would suggest you to start with ScjpFaq This link has solutions to all your queries.

As you are familiar with Java, I dont think its required to join any coaching institute for the same. For the book- You can use SCJP Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. Please note that SCJP is now referred as OCPJP.
