How to Pass Java SCJP
SCJP/OCJP is not a tough exam if you prepare it in the right way. If you follow these simple instructions, we guarantee your exam pass.
Step 1: Grab a good study guide
No matter how expert you are in Java language, you must go through a study guide. We recommend SCJP Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. Do NOT skip any part just because you feel like "I'm expert in this area". There are lots of unseen things that will be tested in the exam, so read it catefully. Every time you find something new, write it down on a piece of paper. If you don't feel you understand something perfectly, make small Java programs and try things yourself. At the end of this step, you must have compiled notes of 'unseen' things of Java.
Step 2: Register with ExamLab
As the next step, signup with ExamLab. ExamLab provides everything beside the study guide that you need to pass the exam. Once you signed up with a free account, a dedicated tutor will be assigned to you. Let him/her know where you currently stand in your preparation, and he/she will assist you with more helpful tips.
Step 3: Start Practicing with ExamLab Questions
As you are registered with ExamLab, you should now start practicing with its "Diagnostic exam". These questions are very tricky than what you will see in the real exam. However, these questions are designed in a 'psychological' way that makes you perfect at the exam. Do NOT focus on your score at all. Focus on the explanations given in the review mode at the end of the exam. Grab the new knowledge you see in these explanations and add them to your notes. Do NOT ignore a single question without reading its explanation.
Step 4: Keep Practicing
After diagnostic exam, you can keep practicing with Practice 1, 2, 3, 4, and Final exams on ExamLab. Repeat the same process as in step 3 to grab the knowledge. Upgrade your account to a standard account at a very little cost to have full access to these exams. You are safe at paying to upgrade, because you are covered with a 100% money back guarantee.
Don't have enough time?
If you don't have enough time to complete all practice exams on ExamLab, do the "Pass Guaranteed Exam" on ExamLab. This will assess your knowledge and will produce a list of study notes that you must focus on to pass the exam.
It's only 4 steps. Just do it, and you will definitely pass the exam with an awesome score. That's how simple SCJP/OCPJP is :-)
