This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I DID IT. Got 53 out of 59 right.that's 89.8%.They truncate it. I round it to 90%.(Math.round(89.8)) First of all thanx to all at Javaranch.com. especially Ajith Khallambela,Jane Griscti,Marcus Green,Amitabh,Shailesh. I have to say this is the best site for certification discussion and I've learnt a lot from here. The exam had 7-8 thread,5-6 IO,3 awt,2 util. Questions I got 100% in Threads ,IO and also in Overriding,flow control& exc. Io is pretty straightforward.Thread questions are difficult and take up a lot of time due to long codes,but it can be cracked if you are clear on synchronization and monitors. I lost marks in fundamentals,awt(suprisingly),Collections. I never could remember all the interfaces in Collections I feel RHE plus a lot of mocks is enuf to pass. I used RHE and did IO,Threads,Inner classes,Collections from Khalid's book. Khalid's book is really good ,but I just didn't have time to study the whole book as I only had 3 weeks leave to study. JQPlus is a definite advantage. I have 2 say there r about 4-5 questns. almost same to same in the exam. Next target : either Sun Developer or JDeveloper. Could anyone give me advice on this? I'll be hanging around and trying to pay back ,in whatever way I can, the help that had been lent to me. Thanx all VIKRAM
Congratulations.... I have a question. How were you faring in your mock exams any JQ or other mock exams Some mock exams are tougher than others, so if you score above 75% in mock does that mean you have a good chance of scoring above 90 in the real exam. please advise..

THANK YOU ALL. It's only today that it's starting to sink in that I'm an SCJP finally. Regarding Ramnath's question. I got 83,85,80 in three Marcus Green's Mocks. I got 75-85 in the JQPlus mocks and 90,96 in the randoms(JQPLS) Don't be under the impression that mocks are always difficult than the real thing.There are some mocks around, which are still based on the old version of the exam and are much easier to score. apart from that I noticed that the options that are given in the real exam are quite similar to each other and really makes you think ,whereas in the mocks you can apply the elimination rule to most of the options. I hope that helps.
