On 5th may at 7:00 p.m ....thanks God!!! i passed SCJP WITH only and exatly 61%.I am very happy with the result.If i would have prepared for one week more and work on jqplus i would have scored more.I was preparing since three months but not consistance.
I reached up to sun's minimum level....eventhough i m very happy.
i found one similar qs from JQ+.
first 6 Qs on IO i got 100%,
from 35 to 50 all are fundamentals and very eaSy and strightforward.
7-8 Qs on thread all are lengthy around 25-35 lines, 3 of them on syncronized, not a single on theory.
Util i found only two - basic qs.
no qs on StringBuffer,
for , while loop ..very tough...
one on GC i got 0%.
5-6 on inner class most of theoritical, overloading/riding very easy, one on shift but i m sure it was on pass by value/reference.
one qs on difference betn MouseListener/Mousemotionlistener.
most of qs has 6-7 options.
overall i got
IO 100%
Overloading/riding 100%
Util 100%
GC 0%
remaining parts u can imagin.....
no fill in blank qs.
i mark aroung 8 qs out of them i corrected ony two which benefit me or not i dont know!!!
i got on average 61-70% in JQ+1,2,3,...8 and random test,
75% in Marcus 1,2,3.
I have studied RHE, Examcram .these are very good books.
i got least in threads i.e 41%.I think i should have written more programs in Threads using synchronization.I got one question in GridbagLayout and i was correct.
i started JQ+ before 10 day of my exam, i completed each exam only once, i would have repeat the same to learn more but i could't it.
2)Try to concentrate more on I/O, Remember all the thread class constructors.Try to remember the inheritence heirarchy in I/O.I have got 6-7 questions in I/O.
3)Write as many programs in threads using synchronization.I got 7 questions in threads.

I would like to sincerely thank Maha Anna for her excellent work.I would also like to Tony,thank Mapraputa Is, Jane Griscti, Cindy , Thomas Paul, shailesh sonavadekar who are working day and night to help people in succeeding the exam.I would also like to thank Velu for his notes.I also like to thank Marcus Green for his excellent mock exams.
Thaks to Paul Anil for his excellent work - JQplus.

Thanks everyone,
