I run it from the DOS console,

A window shows up, and says Start: Applet not Initialised

Do certs with someone with low grades make a difference if he is a good programmer?
And does the Math HAVE to be good?!

I guess Interviews always hover around the basics, and then more over to complicated questions. Maybe refreshing on the basics should help you enough to crack an interview.
Java Tutorial should cover it all. Also, some popular interview questions to wrap it up.

1. Certifications look good on paper ONLY. They are the proofs that you know the language, but not of how well you know it.
2. Hows, and Whens for OCJP. <- CLICK
3. Reference books, WWW, and CodeRanch, ofc.
4. Kathy Sierra And Bert Bates, Ganesh and Sharma are mostly preferred.

Let's consider the simplest Swing program that prints "Welcome",

Now, for importing AWT, i simply write it as java.awt.(Whatever), but for importing SWING I have to write "javax"? Why?

I suggest you take a look at the first chapter (i.e. FAQs chapter) by Ganesh/Sharma book. This chapter answers all the questions a newbie could have on OCPJP 7.

Also, is SE6 better than SE7 ?

How is the Enthuware ?

P.S. : Its just been a few weeks that i have started learning Java, but I want to appear for OCJP.

There is no doubt about the K&B book (SCJP 6), it is quite good. However, their book for OCPJP 7 will come in June end. We hope that the book will be good as well. However, I started reading the book by Ganesh/Sharma and I (and few others) found this book useful.

I have NO idea whatsoever on when the exams are, and how to register.. if anyone knows please provide the link.

Katy Sierra was scjp exam designer at Sun micro system as per i know ,they write great book.

Didn't know that!
And thanks for the help. After everyone's views, I guess its not a bad idea to refer two books afterall.
