The topics range from profiling, VCS, debugging, creationg of desktop/web applications and others...
Its a really nice exam, even though the beta exam was very extensive and tiring to say at least.
I have collected few links as a study guide and also created a document, google docs, with the topics and links for tutorials on each subject. I prefer tutorials than the help pages since its kinda boring to be reading just the topics on the help.
Another thing is that experience with the IDE is required. I dont think that just few reading, like with every certification exam, would make you pass... And since there are no books yet to this exam the best place to find sources is the NetBeans page.
Here are the links:
- http://sites.google.com/site/netbeansscsni/ : very good page with topics and explanation, much like the document I created but somewhat short in some topics.
- http://wiki.netbeans.org/CertExamStudyGuide : The study guide from the netbeans wiki. Also very good.
- http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dx49w9x_122ch742cd6 : I created this document with lots of links and some passages from the IDE's Help.
Any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me...
Good luck with the studies.
