  1. 1. Sameh Shohdy
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform5.0 certification exam is for programmers experienced using the Java programming language . </li></ul><ul><li>For candidates who already hold an SCJP certification under a prior version and want to be certified under a more recent version, Sun provides SCJP 5.0 Upgrade exam </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Sun’s programmer exam is considered the one of the hardest and fastest-growing certification in the IT world. </li></ul><ul><li>Achieving this certification provides clear evidence that a programmer understands the basic syntax and structure of the Java programming language &can create Java technology applications that run on a server and desktop systems using J2SE 5.0. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>SCJP certification is a prerequisite to the whole spectrum of specialty certifications in Java available from Sun. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Choose a certification option (exam) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There are 8 certification options </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Study the material </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a plan of attack </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Drag-net the web </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meet up with like minded people and set targets and goals </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Book, sit and pass the corresponding exam </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Buy an exam voucher </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Book the exam online from the Sun site. A third party actually hosts the exam (called a Prometric Testing Centre) not Sun. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Turn up for a couple of hours and answer the minimum number of multi choice questions in the allotted time </li></ul></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>Q. How do I choose which certification exam to study for? </li></ul><ul><li>A. Talk to somebody who has already certified and visit the following site: </li></ul><ul><li>Q. I’ve decided to do the programmer certification, which one should I do? 4.0 or 5.0? </li></ul><ul><li>A. Version 5 is new, therefore it is harder to find resources (books and sites etc). As it becomes more established more resources will be available. </li></ul><ul><li>Q. How long will it take me to study enough to sit the exam? </li></ul><ul><li>A. It depends on your experience, but I suggest you should earmark 3 months of committed part time study, which at times can get quite intensive. </li></ul><ul><li>Q. Do I have to keep my certifications up-to-date? </li></ul><ul><li>A. Most people sit a certification exam and move onto a specialist exam rather than keeping their certification versions current. However, there are Platform Upgrade exams and Sun recommend you keep your certification up-to-date. See </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>Open From Word File </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Prerequisite: None </li></ul><ul><li>Cost: $300 </li></ul><ul><li>Exam type: Multiple Choice and Drag & Drop </li></ul><ul><li>Total number of questions: 72 </li></ul><ul><li>Maximum time allowed: 175 minutes </li></ul><ul><li>Pass score: 43 questions correctly out of 72 </li></ul><ul><li>(almost 59%) </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>Question format is multiple choice, including some drag-and-drop questions. </li></ul><ul><li>The number of correct answers is given in case of multiple choice questions with multiple answers. </li></ul><ul><li>There are hardly any questions with true/false answers. </li></ul><ul><li>There are a lot of questions with three (or sometimes two) correct answers. </li></ul><ul><li>Question with radio button answers means that only one answer is correct. </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>All questions are weighted equally </li></ul><ul><ul><li>So, answer all the ‘easy’ questions first </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You could spend 10 minutes on a difficult question and get 2 marks . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Or you could spend 10 minutes on 5 questions and get 10 marks . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Mark questions for review if you have spent too long on them and go back to them at the end if you still have time. </li></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>Questions vary from very easy to very difficult, but mostly difficult. </li></ul><ul><li>No credit is given for partially correct answers in case of questions with multiple answers. </li></ul><ul><li>For knowing more about the question format, refer to some SCJP 5.0 Mock Exam. </li></ul><ul><li>Many links are given for mock exams in further slides. Please note that, except for the exam format rest everything in the slides holds equally well for both SCJP 5.0 </li></ul><ul><li>certification exam and SCJP 5.0 upgrade certification exam. </li></ul>
