Good Study Guide

The strategy I used to prepare for the SCJP exam was to useRoberts and Heller guide as a study guide. It has 142 samplequestions. I found it to be a very good guide having good representative questions.I used Boone's guide (Java 1.1 Certification Exam Guide) for its sample tests. It has two sample 70 question tests and 119 review questions. The strategy I used was to take several practice tests after studing the guide.Unfortunately, there are too many errors in Boone's book. Check the errata, but I still found it to be lacking. The wording of Boone's questions were sometimes ambiguous.I found the questions in Roberts and Heller to be much more precise. For sample tests, there are many available on the Web.I recommend the Roberts and Heller book, but I suggest checking the web for Mock tests rather than using Boone's Certification book.BTW, I passed the SCJP test on the first try.

It rocked!

I took the test twice and my score increased by 20% thus alowing me to pass! The test engine is pretty lame, but I've seen worse.

This book is all you need to pass the Java exam

I passed the exam with 88% thanks to this book. It covers everything you need to know, and even though it is very detailed it is extremely readable. The author gets right to the important information without wasting pages on the "filler" material that is in so many programming books. The only weak points of the book, in my opinion, are the chapters on Event Handling and File I/O which seem rushed and not as informative as the other chapters. However, there is still enough information to pass the exam with no problem if you carefully study this book and its sample questions.

Lots of confidence...

I took the exam two days back and got a cool 90% thanks to this book.. What this book gives you is a lot of confidence to take the exam.. there will definitely be questions outside what this book covers.. but it will give you an idea about what kind of questions you should expect during the exam.. Best of luck..

This is a book to buy

This is a great book to prepare yourself for a Programmers exam. Every topic that is in the test is covered in this book. My advise to you: BUY IT, you won't regret it
