Hi ranchers,
On 9th I cleared my SCJP exam with 74% . Although I was expecting at least 85 to 90% and would have been happier if i had got that.
I offer my thanks to javaranch and all javaranch members, the bartenders, moderators who helped me do it. Thanks to JQPlus too.
There were many who made prompt reply to many of my queries.
I received atleast around 10 questions on threads all of them one after the another not in random . Around 6 to 7 atleast on for while loops(tricky ones) with the ++ and -- operators.
All of them were codes only. Hardly did i receive maybe 4 to 5 overall on small objective questions not based on codes. I just received one question of I/O.
I think Javaranch is a great site. But i came to know it very late since the homepage talks about ranchers and things like that. So initally i came across the site but just ignored it thinking it might not be so useful.

Thank you very much everybody.
