Hi Everybody ! Yes! I passed ! Started the test hoping for 53% and ended up with 95%... During the test I could still remember Dr. Hyman�s explanations, they really helped. ( Dr. Hyman was my Java Teacher in second semester 2001, El Camino College, CA ). Thanks Dr. Hyman for letting me in your course ! Thanks also to all of you to JavaRanch, this forum really keeps us going. Thanks Vince Hon for the study materials... I read 2 books, both very good, "Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide By Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates" and "The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide , Third edition Philip Heller, Simon Roberts " Did some mock exams: Sun sample questions: 90% Marcus Green exam 1 : 74% Kathy/Bert�s book final exam: 89% Philip Heller book final exam: 64% ( was the first one I took ) JQPlus exam 1: 69% Dan Chisholm: 52% I found the test easy compared to the mock exams. My study time was: a 6 month java course at El Camino College in 2001. 2002 no java studying , but I took a C# course which helped me settle OO concepts. Started really studying 2 months ago reading the books slowly, and the last 2 weeks were full time study, more than 8 hours a day ... Thanks everyone ! Thanks my hubby and my sis for letting me do nothing but study for the past 2 weeks... Giselle Dazzi SCJP !!!

Hi Uddsu, Dan Chisholm mock exams are excellent, you can find them at: You get kind of low scores with them, but dont use them to predict the score you are gonna get, use them as a great tool for learning: http://www.danchisholm.net For information on JQPlus, go to http://www.jdiscuss.com/ you can even win a JQPlus V4 for free ! Good Luck ! Giselle And Thanks again everybody from JavaRanch. Yes I�ll stick around, I really enjoy the site, and who knows I might even go for another Certification once I forget how stressful this can be.... Ah, btw, I also drank a lot of water during the test... I really clears up your mind !
