This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I got my results on Monday and passed with 377 out of 4000 or 94%. I am very pleased, but also disappointed with the score for the network Server as I do not understand why Sun deducted 23 points from it: General Con: 100 100 Documentation: 70 70 OOD: 30 30 GUI: 40 40 Locking: 80 80 Data Store: 40 40 Network Server: 40 17 Total: 400 377
In any case, thank you to everybody on JavaRanch because without them, I would not have been able to get such a good score. Thanks again.
oli: I got my grade back and got 375. I lost 13 in documentation and 12 in GUI. I thought I did a good GUI and obviously not good enough to SUN's grader. It seems you did a good job on these two sections. Can you post a snapshot of what your GUI look like so that I may get some sense? Thanks. What your next exam plan? SCEA? I am thinking is it is appropriate to proceed to SCEA after SCJD.
