I am so happy to inform you that with Allah's grace I have passed the SCJP exam with 87%. I am very grateful to my friends Salim who helped me whenever I had a problem in understanding. I am also very grateful to my manager Matt, who let me take time off for this. I am in DBA support group and I am new in Java so I had to put lot of efforts. I read Khalid Mughal book (thanks again, Salim) and bought Head First Java by kathy seirra. Both are very good books. I took all the mock free exams available on the net. I also did jqplus exams by enthuware, another very good resource. I also read discussions on this site which increased my confidence. May God bless you all. I hope and pray that everybody will pass.
