Agraj has completed his graduation in Computer Science from Delhi University and later, he has also completed MCA from Delhi University as well. Now, he is working as a Software Engineer. He loves making friends, reading books, learning new technologies, and writing blogs, whatever he gets the time. After reviewing the uCertify PrepKit for the exam SCJP 5.0, he concluded that “Although it is an excellent kit to give you a proper feel of the actual exam; it is equipped with some easy and some tough (read tricky) questions as well just as the actual paper would. But, do not think that you need just this PrepKit to clear the paper! What you also need is a javac (Java compiler) to practice and coding. I strongly recommend understanding the involved concepts and coding by hand (not by IDE), then take these useful tests to gain confidence as the actual exam looks almost the same.”
