Hi All,
I passed the SCJP 1.4 yesterday with 85%. I guess that it is a good score(ofcourse not a rocking score).(Obviously was disappointed for not making it to the 90's).I finished the test in 1 hr and had a full hr for review. At the time I submitted the answers I was expecting atleast 95%. Anyways I must have made some silly mistakes I believe. The paper was really easy on the whole. Needless to say Javaranch deserves the credit for whatever I have achieved.I used the K&B book and Velmurgan study notes.As always said K&B book is all that you require for the test. Also all the mock tests like Dan's(It is the best undoubtedly), Marcus Green, Javacertificate etc helped me a lot. Thanks to my coranchers for helping my out. Vad , finally i gave the test .
One interesting thing I heard which I want to confirm with you all. One test candidate who was there for some Cisco certification told me that the questions that appear in the test are according how you respond to the Survey questions. Meaning that if I say I am an Expert in all the questions regarding the comfortability with the topics then the questions that appear will be harder. I did not know abt it and selected the medium and low skill level for the various topics. I don't know if this assumption is true ??


I would like to give only one advise(although this forum is full of good advices given by other ranchers ) Just double check your answers . Probably I got overconfident and did not check my answers more carefully. It is always safe to be cautious. If any other help is needed I will be there to help in whatever way I can. Thanks again to all and see u soon,
Bye.

Hi Vishy,
I believe that wont be true. Otherwise, every test candiates choose "no experience" in the survey, and each of them can get easy questions.
Do you think it makes any sense?
Once again, congraduation on the well-performed exam.
Nick.

Hi Vishy, Congratulations on your SCJP certification. I wouldnt worry about the score, 85% is not bad at all. I got certified a day after you. So what's the next step for you?

Vishy -
85% is awesome dude! JavaRanch is in it's own weird universe where the hardest exam out there, with a passing percentage of 51%, is considered easy!? It's a tough test! 85% absolutely rocks!!
Also, the answers you give on the questionaire do not affect which exam questions you get!
