SCJP 2013 Tips and Tricks :-
* Try to get a group together to study with, it makes it easier.
* As you progress through your study you will begin to get a ‘feeling’ for what the question is asking.
* Read, practice, sit practice exams and discuss with colleagues over and over again.
* If you buy a certification book (recommended) be prepared to read your chosen study book 3 times.
* In the Drag and Drop type questions, the answer gets reset if you try to review it. So, always complete and double check your answer before moving away from a Drag and Drop question.
* It would be helpful to solve Drag and Drop questions on a sheet of paper before actually attempting them in the test.
* The revised exam has more performance-based questions than knowledge-based questions requiring memorization of API details. So spend more time on hands-on practice, especially of commonly used methods, and avoid trying to memorize each and every API detail simply by reading.
* Be clear about the classes implementing the Collection types like List, Set, and Map. Be aware of which of these types support sorting, which allow duplicates, which give the best performance, and so on.
* Remember that immutable string objects are returned by the String class. StringBuilder and StringBufffer both return mutable strings; the only difference between them is that * StringBuffer is thread-safe, while the other is not.
* When you see the usage of varargs in a method, ensure that the ellipsis is appearing as the last argument to the method.
* Remember that the super type of generic Collection objects is Collection<?> and not Collection <Object>.
* Remember that since the wildcard (?) stands for an unknown type, you cannot add to generic types using wildcards.
* Know the distinction between Comparable and Comparator and the methods defined by these interfaces.
* Ask your employer to pay for the exam. They may pay or reimburse you if you pass the exam?
