Hi Everybody,
I passed SCJP today with 93%. I got 55 out of 59 questions correct. I want to thank javaranch and everybody who posts topic here. Though i rarely participated in the discussions, i used to go through the posts regularly. It was very very useful for my preparation.
Thanks again,

Hi Thiruna,
All the best for your exam. Have you taken Marcus greem test1? There are some great questions on threads in the first mock test. Marcus green tutorial on threads is also quite good. They really help to understand the concept better. Even JQ+ has quite many questions on the topic.
IO, i feel u just need to be good at the basics. Just be very good at the basic input and output streams, readers and writers...especially their constructors. I don't think the test is going deep into these topics.
Inner classes i found the chapter in Khalid Mughal very good. You should basically know how they can be declared, whether they can have static or non-static members, the access modifiers they can have, how they can be instantiated, their access to the members of the enclosing context and all that.
What i felt was the exam tests you on the bare basics. But there are some tricky questions which you can answer only when all those basics are internalized into you. Read the questions carefully. Take your own time. There is more than enough time. I finished the test in 70-80 minutes. Then i revised the answers twice. Be careful about questions which look like they are testing you on a topic, but they might be actually testing you on some other concept.
All the very best once again,
