Hello java ppl
By the grace of One who is the creator of all living beings I am " Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform. I scored a cool and refreshing 93%. I am very happy.
I would like to give maximum credit to this wonderfully amazing sit "javaranch".
Because if it not had been for this site i would have never been SCJP now(I think Sun should acknowledge u ppl or some thing for the role u r playing in teaching java).If it would not have been due to this site I would have never know what it takes to be a java certified. I came to know about the books ,jls, mocks, level of question and inspiration from this site.Thank u Guys .Jane,Cindy,Ajith, and especially Maha and all others who keep this site up.
And a special thanks to all those who were kind enough answer my question even the last few ones yesterday and the day before it ,which were really childish(e.g range of char etc).
It took me about 4-months (because i am lazy and inconsistant) to prepare for the paper. Since i am not from IT background and never done programming before .
I read KAM, JLS,Ivor Horton.
Did a lot of mocks. Question from thread were not bad and 6-7 only.I/O they were 6-7.
inner classes were the toughest part They had about 9-10 question with about 6-7 with codes.But none of the code were big then 15 line except for 1 which was i guess 30 line and was of thread.
Marcus Has an excellent mock.
And i have still one question ?
I did took paper from Oracle platform due to some personal reasons What i want to know is that can i take Sun's developer paper or can i only take JDeveloper???
See u All in the developer forum.

Congratulations Denish, nice score
I believe the IBM SCJP is recognized by Sun; I think the same applies for the Oracle certification path but you should check directly with Sun.
All the best with your future studies.
