Hi all,
I have at last joined the SJCP community. It took 3 attempts, and it was only this morning that I got the exam by the skin of my teeth. I would just like to thank everyone at javaranch. And for those who are having problems getting the exam, my advice is identify your problem areas and know them backwards.
It's a case of, know what you know and know what you don't know.
I'll keep in touch with the ranch, and offer a helping hand whenever I can.
All the best,
Brian C

Hi Brian congrats,
One of my friend was telling that the questions were more tougher than before,and also very standard.
Let me know being strong with the mock examples is enough,i mean if the questions are tougher than the mock exams.

congrats a lot, brian!
as a veteran, could you just give me an idea on how deeply i should go into java.util and java.lang classes, and what type of questions to expect from there?

Hi guys,
I would make sure that you know java.lang package well. You will get a good few questions on it. java.util is not as definite, so I would'nt worry too much about knowing it in great detail. The mock exams are quite similar to the questions that you will get in the exam, especially Marcus Greens exam no.2. What you get in that will be a similar score to what you will get in the real exam, give or take 10%.
Use this link
for a list of all the latest mock exams. Note Jxam has been updated recently, and make sure you know no.23 Test your java knowledge.
Also know all about passing String and StringBuffer as arguements to methods.
All the best guys,
Brian C
