Just passed the test with 93%!! There were at least 3 or 4 questions from i/o and threads each, about the same or less in awt (1 gridbag but relatively easy), and from the rest I remember seeing lots of overriding/overloading questions.
I wanted to thank those who donate their time and share their knowledge on JavaRanch especially in the certification forum. I have not asked many questions there but that's because of the great amount of in-depth answers already available. Those were very invaluable and very motivating so thanks! Now that I've completed my goal I would like to do the same for others to the extent that I can!
thanks Ross

hi.Congrats good score.
Can u share with me your experience of giving the SCJP.
I am appearing next month so i need some advices.
I have the JQ+ software but frankly speaking my concepts at Java are very weak.At present I am referring RHE and the JQ+.
Do u think these two with help me to pass the SCJP.As i dont have much time I cannot afford to refer another book.
Also when i appear through the mocks my scores are very very poor.Really tensed and dont know what to do.
Please Help.Need your valuable suggestions.

Hi thanks to all of you!
Hi Sonir, I think doing tests is very important. They test your knowledge and bring additional points to mind. However you must first have the basic knowledge!
The book is good starting point- read each chapter. To get further insight, search the JavaRanch Certification forum. I found many interesting discussion there with points beyond what any book can cover. Also, follow your curiousity and spend time building sample programs. There is no substitute for that especially when it comes to i/o, threads, and awt. Hope this helps- best of luck!
