Hi everybody..
Let me begin by first expressing my gratitude at receiving so many good wishes and tons of encouragement.. I am simple overwhelmed at the response of JavaRanchers towards my post , some of u have been gracious enough to send me congratulatory e-cards and messages.. wish to thank all of u again for all this.. surely feel part of one big JavaRanch family now!
Many of u have asked me to share my experiences and way of study, which I will only be too happy to do. Well, to begin with, I began my preparation for the exam a couple of months ago. I started off with Roberts & Heller, which , IMHO, is an excellent book to begin with. Once I had finished it, I started scourging the net for mock exams and started visiting our very own javaranch regularly. One thing I must mention here is that this site truly is the last word for any aspiring SCJP. At least, I found it to be so. Also, I began reading Bill Brogden�s Exam Cram, which you should go for after giving a read to R&H the first time.
I have gained a wealth of information browsing the posts on this site, especially Maha Anna�s mock exams page. Pls do make it a point to visit all the mock exams given here� I came across many subtleties here which I had missed out on while reading R&H. What I used to do was jot down my individual scores and work on my weak sections, which helped me a lot. In the last few days before the exam, I revised the notes I had taken down comprising of all the important points I came across reading the preparatory books and visiting different sites. The day before the D-Day, I went through all the test engines once again(like Jxam, Jquest, Khalid Mughal�s test engine and any other I found on the net).
About the exam, I faced just one short answer question in which I was reqd to type in the answer , and no I didn�t use quotes. All the other ques had single-choice or multiple-choice answers. I had about 8 questions on threads and the same no on iava.io. The rest was a fair sprinkling of other topics, specially overloading and overriding.
I hope I have answered all your queries, but in case I haven�t, you are welcome to mail me.
Thanx again to all you guys .. a big one to Cindy, your quotes straight from the JLS bailed me out several times.. :-).. and Neeraj, I don�t plan to give SCJD in the near future because I am preparing for my MCA exams. .hope to give it sometime though.. especially with all the encouragement that has come my way lately.. :-)
Regards,

Hey Hima Congrats!
U've done a great job.U'rs awesome score would be very much inspiring for future aspirants and for me too.
I'd be giving JCP exam after 24 days and still I havent studied
last 4 objectives of exam.Well ,but I'll try to complete them within the coming 4-5 days.
How much score I can hope to garner with this 24 days of preparation?
What should I do to grasp the new concepts in this short span?
Have U also used JQ+ for U'r preparation?
..........
Ok then ..congrats once again...
Bye..Bye..

Wow!! Awesome. It couldn't be better!!
Hearty congratulations for the great accomplishment.
As for your question, Sun Ed does not publish the demographics or any other details from their database. It is considered a confidential information and there is no way to know how many has scored 100% before.
We haven't had too many JavaRanchers who has scored 100%. If I have to guess, I'd say the total is not more than ten. Whatever it is, your achievement is really commendable. Good luck for your future and try to help others whenever you can
Good luck,
Ajith
