First of all, Congrats for great score. I am planning to take SCJP and I would follow the schedule and books suggested by you. Thank you so much for sharing this. It's really helpful

it's great, it's my dream to score 96%.Congrats. I want to ask one question. When I read the K&B and then do the tests at the end of chapters i do many mistakes. But when I do some online tests my score is not so bad(approximate -75-80%).
What is the level in real exam? How many tricky questions are there?
Please sorry if you don't understand my English

Hi, Rufat.

Actually all those tests at the end of each chapter are really difficult to complete without any mistake, and not all real-exam questions are as complex as those are. However, I should say that different online mock-ups doesn't always cover every possible question and I saw some of the a bit too easy. Many of them have outdated questions (notice the fact, that many questions have "compilation fails" option which is quite a new thing compared to previous exams). Also consider that small anxiety that you will probably have before the real exam, so it could have some negative impact too. My advice would be to try fighting until you reach ~95% correct answers in K&B book, which means you can reasonably expect similar score in the Prometric's room.

By the way, after Oracle have bought SUN, the learning centre website is not reacheable using old links. Start right here: http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=365

Is this certification useful or should i concentrate on developing my own apps/programs in order to improve my Java skills and knowledge?
Thank you

It depends... Whether you want to improve your practical Java application development skills or get a paper recognised by various associations, employers and societies.

YO BRO SURE THANX FOR UPDATING THIS PAGE...DUDE CAN U HELP ME OUT ABOUT THE TIME U GAVE FOR EACH TOPIC.....I AM A ROOKIE IN JAVA FIELD SO PLEASE CAN U SUGGEST ME TOO THE TIME I SHOULD GIVE TO EACH TOPIC

Vidmantas Maskoliūnas December 6, 2011 10:20 PM
Unfortunately I can't remember exact timescales... Actually I did not count it precisely. Until I felt the topic was "mastered", I read it slowly without rush. So for topics like "Development" I spent just a little bit, maybe three days or so in all. For topics like "Generics" that could take few weeks, I guess.

Your write-up is really helpful to me. Especially keeping track of the chapters in a spreadsheet. Well done!
