Hi all, I passed my SCJP today . I wouldn't have done it without this site. Though i haven't been active in any of the forum discussions, i have been visiting this site regularly. my thanks to Velumurguan periasamy for his excellent notes. My special thanks to Jane Griscti for her study notes, especially on I/O which helped me to get 100% in that section. RHE, javaranch, JQ+ and Marcus Green were the only resources that I used. I got 79%. I was averaging about 75% in JQ+ tests, which is almost the same score i got in the exam. I got 8-10 questions on I/O 5-6 questions on threads 1 question on inner class 6-8 questions on Overloading and Overriding 1 question on Garbage collector 3 questions on awt and eventhandling 2 questions on java.util 5-6 on java.lang (i had to type the answers for 2)
No questions on Conversion and casting, surprisingly. One question on "is a" relationship. I had 4 questions for which i had to type answers. 2 on String and string buffer and one on Exception handling. i typed the answers WITHOUT the quotes. i did the right thing i guess, as i got 100% on java.lang and Exception handling. I/O questions were only on constructors. Watch out for tricky questions. one question i got, looked like it was on exception handling but was actually testing on modifiers (a static method had a call to a non-static method). Sorry for such a lengthy post but i hope this helps others who are preparing for the exam.

Thank you all for your wishes. Rajashree, I did not get any questions on any of the subclasses of components. The questions were only on Layout Managers. Something like, which layout manager is suitable for a particular scenario and another one was a code question, which asked if the frame was resized what would happen to the components in the frame. Rashmi, you can find jane's notes in the following site. http://www.janeg.ca/index.html
