thanks mehul, anand, cowboy.
mehul, I am not sure what the exact question of yours.
I can only tell my experience. I tried running the examples
from books and mocks. And whenever I want to confirm sth,
I will write several lines of code. eg.,if it's possible for
a class has protected modifier, if it's possible to override
a static method, sth like that.
And this cowboy, I also recommend the excellent Java Language specification
I didn't read other SCJP books so it's hard to which say one is "must". Exam Cram maybe is a very good supplementary book.
But to me, only having exam cram is not enough. Most answers of my questions were found in Khalid's book. If I can't find answers from it then I check the Java Language Specification. You don't have to read too many books. One or two is enough, I think. Check the amazon
. You may get the idea.
Different people have different opinions. I am not a professional. You can also listen to others's opinions
. If you search the "%", you will get lots of tips in this forum.
Good luck, I believe you will become SCJPs soon after good
