Passed SCJP exam today!

Yeah! I passed the SCJP exam today with 83%, which, even though it's not the highest score in the world, I was very pleased with.

I have to credit JavaRanch's Campfire and Round Up (as well as periodic lurking on the Java certification threads to keep my spirits up), Roseanne Zhang's SCJP Questions & Answers (http://members.spree.com/education/javachina/Cert/FAQ_SCJP.htm), Marcus Green's Java Programmer Certification Exam and Training site (http://www.software.u-net.com/index.htm), and JQ+ (http://enthuware.com/jqplus/). I began my studying with the old edition of Roberts and Heller (because I got it half-price at Barnes and Noble , which provided a good basic starting point.
I studied for about 6 weeks and did approximately 20 mock exams. I found that the mock exams required much more knowledge of constructors than did the actual exam. On the actual exam, there were only 2 Collection, 2 I/O, and 2 AWT questions, which were all fairly basic. There were a lot of questions on flow, and quite a few that dealt with inner classes.
Congratulations to everyone else and good luck to those of you still studying!

Thanks for the congrats!
What's next for me? I live in Vermont where the bottom fell out of the tech market and my dot-com company went under at the same time that IBM started a job freeze (I worked at IBM before leaving to do the whole e-commerce thing). I'm hoping to pick up some freelance programming work, possibly telecommute, which I know is quite rare these days. As I am also a writer and finished my first novel this spring, I plan to do some more writing.
We'll see. I love programming and I learned a lot more about Java than I knew before in studying for the exam. It was a very positive experience.

I'm in the process of acquiring an agent. If and when that happens, the agent will sell my novel to a publishing house. So the short answer is: I don't know. But I'll keep at it until it happens. Like anything else, it requires optimistic persistence
