cleared SCJP

Hi friends,

Yesterday I had cleared the SCJP exam with the score of 70%.
The exam was not at all tough.But,I had worked hard for the
past four months(really hard,because I had no prior experience with
any language and I started from scratch). In the last four months I
would have worked out around 300 codes. I had done two mini projects

I should thank javaranch for obtaining that breaking score of above 61%.
Last 10 days postings on Strings,threads.... really helped me to obtain that
breaking score.

I would have definitely got a better score but the pressure started building
up during the exam time.Once the pressure starts building up , the brain refuses
to react. Somehow I managed. So, aspiring SCJP's try to get relaxed as much
as possible. If you are in a relaxed state,definitely it will help you.

Thanks everybody and once more Thanks Javaranch.

Thanks Ajith, Murphy and Mukherjee.
Regarding your Q's Mukherjee:
1.break ups, as per previous posts of other friends and no
change in that.

Don't worry about the long codes, the code to analyse
will be only 6 to 10 lines. Other lines will be only
class names , method names, opening and closing braces.
2.Type in Questions: I had about three type in questions.

3.Exihibit button: Don't worry about the exihibit button.
It is very very simple. Before taking the exam request
the incharge(in the Test center) to explain you about
all these buttons.

4.Next, Servlet/JSP or SCJD. Can anybody tell me the subjects
to cover for the SCJD.


I agree. Here's the link:
