I would be really grateful for your assistance.

2. The second problem is that upon studying for the scjp 6 i quit my job(I know dumb move) now i really i want to persue a carreer in java programming and here in my country (Zimbabwe) people don't appreciate programming and I.T and I want to persue a career in programming please do advise me on how i could seek a job outside the country i do have an Advanced Diploma in I.T and my ocpjp 6 certification i would be glad if i was to get a job as junior or trainee programmer. Please do help me out.

1. Buy this book for the master exam: SCJD Exam with J2SE 5 (Expert's Voice in Java) , authors: Andrew Monkouse and Terry Camerlengo, publisiher: Apress. This is the best guide I know of.

2. Looking for a job takes time and sometimes, it depends on luck. Good luck to you, wish you all the best.

Yes. The book is perfectly usable(and useful) for OCMJD with JSE6(I've used the same book).

All the best!

Hi simbarashe,

a mandatory course has been added to the master developer exam so if you want to become certified it's added on a lot of money to this certification.

Seeing since you're out of work with no income this might be out of your budget?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
