Passed SCJP with 77%

I passed the exam yesterday; the real exam was definitely tougher than the mock exams on the net. I hoped for higher score.
Thanks to JavaRanch, Maha Anna for list of mock tests on the net, Marcus Green and all others for their wonderful Tutorials and mocks on the net.
SCJP2 test covers nothing but the basics, and it covers them thoroughly. Even experienced programmers may get tripped up, especially C and C++ programmers in language fundamentals .... the questions are tricky and require a lot of thinking before answering .
In my case almost 3/4 of the test had lengthy code, which made me frustrated and impatient. There were questions with nested loops which tested my concentration. Coupled with this there were problems with my PC at the prometric testing center � I had problems with the mouse scrolling up and down the screen. Please try to choose a center that has good hardware.
In all my mocks I always scored 100% in Threads, but in the real exam I got 85% in threads and 80 % in IO. In Language Fundamentals, Overloading, overriding, Runtime Type and Object Orientations I scored 100% , rest of the sections I score between 75 to 85%.
Going through the Sun tutorials and lot of good books and web resources helped me in making me more confident about the concepts and getting certified.
Good Luck !!! to all of you who are planning to take the test.
