Cleared SCJP2 Exam

Yesterday I cleared SCJP2 Exam. This exam is not at all difficult to clear. I didn't do well in Strings/Operators and assignments/Threads. I scored only 57%. I got 100% file IO. Rest of the sections each between 74-77%

Since I studied the JLS thoroughly, I was able to answer 3-5 tricky questions.
As far the practice exams are concerned, Marcus Green and Exam Cram are really good and close to the real exam's complexity.
The time, 90 minutes was tight. I got only 5 minutes to review the questions.
I came to know about the JAVARANCH recently. I learned some of the topics like constructors/GC/Streams/Strings from this site.
At this moment, I would like to thank all the people who helped me directly/indirectly to get this certificate.
Next, I will be moving to Servets/EJB..
