First of all, I would like to thank every Racnhers for their contribution and support. Without your help, I wouldn��t think it was possible for me to learn and pass the programmer exam in such a short time.
I have to be honest with you. Even though I had done many mock exams, I didn��t get a good score from them. I always get around 50%-60% and it definitely weakened my confidence. I was quite nervous one week prior the exam! Fortunately, I read the posts from the Programmer Certification Results forum and found out that the mock exams were a bit tougher than the actual exam. Then I felt a little bit better.
One good advice for the exam is to stay cool. When you read the question and don��t understand it, read twice. Some wordings are quite tricky and you have to pay attention to these. For example, they may show you codes that extends that class and implements that interface. But in fact, the question is testing your knowledge in using access modifiers. So, clear you mind and don��t over complicate the question. With my exam, the questions were evenly distributed: several in declaration, several in thread, several in awt and event and several in io. One area that I didn��t do well was in GC! Another advice for the people who will take the SCJP exam, please try to do as many mock exams as possible. These exams can identify which area you need to put more efforts into prior the exam.
For me, the SCJP exam is conquered. Now, the Web Component Exam is next! Good luck to all of you!
