SCJP Preparation Tips : Sun Certified Java Professional Study Guide

Many College Students asked me whether they need to give SCJP (OCPJP) exam or not.In this post I will try to clear many of the doubts related to SCJP.

Since Oracle releases  Java 7 , it change the name of the exams , that is SCJP (Sun Certified Java Professional ) now called OCPJP (Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer), while SCJA (Sun Certified Java Associates) now called OCA (Oracle Certified Associate).

If you want to pursue career in Java , then you should take SCJP exam .It is like an investment in yourself and in your career.So let us understand the most important question , why you need to take SCJP or OCPJP exam.

Why SCJP ?

1. It gives expression to the interviewer that you already know basics of java . Employer does not need to spend money to train you basics of Java.

2. Level of questions asked in SCJP is very good . You can give correct answer only if you precisely understand the concept. Hence , SCJP will make you study each basic topic of Java in detail.

3. After reading point 2 , you  will be scared, SCJP is tough , Can I clear it ? I spent 150$ already , what happened if I am not able to pass it ?

The solution to above questions is SCJP Dumps . Dumps is a set of  200-400 questions provided by the Oracle  for each version of Java .Every question asked in the SCJP exam will be from these 200-400 questions ,As of now  60 questions asked in SCJP 6 while 90 questions asked in SCJP 7 (OCPJP 7) .

There are three levels of Certifications from Java 7 onwards :

Basic Level  :           OCA (Oracle Certified Associate)

Intermediate Level : OCPJP (Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer)

Advance Level :       OCM (Oracle Certified Master)

We will discuss about two OCA and OCPJP.

Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) Details:

Oracle Certified Professionals Java Programmer (OCPJP 7) Details :

Note :  SCJP 6 Dumps will be different from SCJP 7 .  So if you are giving test of SCJP 7 then do not prepare the SCJP 6 Dumps . It wont help you . Try to gather SCJP 7 Dumps before giving SCJP 7 java certification.

3. Plan ahead of the time and Read from the above mentioned books very carefully. After every question , you will be able to answer WHY the question is throwing compiler error or exception or a particular option is an answer.

4.  Collect SCJP 6 (for Java 6)  or SCJP 7(for Java 7) Dumps . Register for the SCJP Test after receiving the dumps .
