I shall be appearing for SCJP6 exam in 2 months.

Can you please answer my following questions regarding SCJP6 Exam.

Have Oracle (or Sun) made any changes to SCJP6 certifiction exam? If yes. Can you please give me details regarding the new SCJP certification exam.
I'm currently referring SCJP6 Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. Will this book be enough to score in the exam?
Where can I get sample questions for practise?
How much shall the voucher cost?
What is the duration for the exam?
What is the minimum % marks required for passing the exam?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Ranch

The exam objectives and details can be found on the Oracle site here.

I don't think there is any changes from the Sun SCJP6 and the Oracle OCPJP6. The K&B study guide for SCJP6 is surely enough to aid you in preparing for the exam. Of course do lots of programming exercises along the way.

You may want to check out the SCJP FAQ here

Good luck

Hello there

The 852 exam is for upgrade from previous SCJP to v6. Unless you are already SCJP (any version), you will be taking the 851 exam.

You could answer that yourself by either reading the Java Language Specification or writing a small test program that used an identifier with that name and seeing if the compiler complained about it.

The SCJP or OCPJP is the prereq for other developer certifications. I think you should focus on JP first.
