Hi all,
Last week I passed SCJP with 82%. Now I am heading to OOAD with UML. I think I have to start learning from scratch.
Please advice me, how shall I go ?
All advices are welcome.
Many Thanks,
Maya
SCJP

Hi Avjeet and Tahir,
Thanks for the responses and many thanks in offering the help. I will let you know where I stand.
Also, are there any sites where the exam materials/preparation materials and more mock exams are available ?.
I mean, for SCJP there were plenty of materials, available from Marcus Green, Velmurugan, all were really good. Like that, is there any thing available in the net ?
Thanks again,
Maya

This exam, the good think is you don't have to spend that much time browsing. This is more of a internalization process where u start thinking in terms of uml digrams. or may be some ooad concepts. so the books are more than enough. there are lot of sites as such on ooad but not targeted for this exam.
