SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Study Guide. by Bert Bates, Kathy Sierra. Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media. Release Date: July SCJP Study Guide - Katherine Sierra,Bert Bates.
I don't think it will help me land a Java job as everyone seems to want Java experience prior to even giving you an interview. But if I ever do get an interview, the knowledge I gained from preparing the exam would definitely help me to better answer the questions though I'm sure a lot of the specific API details will fade with time.
Also now I feel more confident with Java. Still I can't say that I can just whip up a Java program on the white board that fully works because the API is very complex. A language like C is pretty small, include stdio. Also with expressions there are a ton of rules, promotions, casting, autoboxing, etc.
Though C has precedence hell, with the right parenthesis you can get away with a lot. Java is more strict on things ie if 0 is an error. But the exam is worth it just for some additional trivia, although the exam is a bit frustrating, and if you look at the book it pretty much tells you that the exam deliberately picks tricky questions and edge cases in an attempt to confuse you.
It will deliberately give bad indentation and other stuff to try to be tricky.
I hate that because rather than focusing on you knowing the material reasonably, it focuses on trying to confuse you. One thing of note, don't get thrown by the Master exam. I tried to take one in exam mode, and they gave 75 questions in 1.
The real exam is 60 questions and you get 3 hours. Also the questions on the actual exam are MUCH easier than on the master exam. Certified downloader , Rayagada. Explore Plus. Educational and Professional Books. Entrance Exams Preparation Books.
