I passed the SCJP exam yesterday with 96%
Thanks to all the people who spent a lot of time and effort putting useful information regarding certification process.
Thank you all.
Exam was not super-tough or super-easy. It was intermediate. It was good. Some questions were straight. Lot of them wanted you to think thru the concepts well. Some were real tricky and needed you go thru the steps in a working sheet. All of them needed careful study of the question and the code exhibit.
I had one type in answer question (regarding String functions)
5 or 6 q's in java.io. Most of them related to File Streams.
3,4 in java.util. Most of them straight questions. 3,4 in awt.
5 or so in threads. Some of them trickier. I missed one question in threads. Another one I missed was in operators & assignments section. Those questions also were tricky. for loops and lot of operators involved. I don't know which one I missed.
I studied KAM/Rasmussen(great), RHE(very nice), BB's Exam Cram. Went thru Sun's, Marcus green's, Jyothi's tutorials and JLS. Referred Dylan Walsh's study notes. Wrote lot of small programs. Did lot of Mock exams.(JQPlus,Marcus Green, Jaworski, Jxam, Jargon and Applied Reasoning are the ones I liked) Maha Anna's page pointed to lot of mock exams.
After all the efforts, I'm very happy now seeing the result.
Again, Thanks for the modertors of JavaRanch to have such a nice forum. (Your round-up game is really good).
Best wishes to all of you in all your efforts.

You mentioned some sites in your post, could you please forward their URL to judyz20@hotmail.com? I am preparing for SCJP now, but feel I don't have enough helping materials. If you have any note at hand, could you forward to me too?
Thanks very much and wish you best in your career.

I have a doubt with respect to the real exam :
If there is a question to answer in a text field, how should the answer be provided in this text field. For example :
i) if answer is xyz should be written as "xyz" or xyz or the full statement with semicolon.
ii) If there is a value to be assigned to String, should there be spaces as String s = "abc"; or String s="abc";
Can you quote more examples of such types (that you got. DO NOT GIVE FROM THE REAL EXAM)
