Passed SCJD 351/400

So I fell into the locking trap!
I think it was just one line of code that used the cache of record numbers collection concurrently to check record validity. It wasn't a synced Set and I didn't sync on it. Occured to me a day after submitting.

I think the 1 mark for documentation was where I had cut and paste comments identically for a similar method.
You certainly don't need to javadoc everything.

So my tip is, when you get to the point where you just have to submit or you will explode, just take an hour to step through the locking code very carefully.

Does anyone ever get between 80/80 & 44/80 ?

I would like to thank the late Phil Maquet who's posts on this forum I found the most helpful. And also most noteably Andrew Monkhouse amongst many others. Thanks folks!

I'll answer questions briefly for a bit if anyone wants tips.

Mike, as someone who has concurrently did his assignment as you did yours, I offer my heartfelt congratulations on your successful completion of the certification.

How long did it take you to get it back? The reason I ask is that the assignment I submitted went to the assessor today, and I am trying to get a handle on the waiting

Anton.

Congratulation!

I still wonder about the 44/80, that seems like a huge deduction for a small problem.

Do you have any idea why the General Considerations score is so low?

What was your choices.txt file like?

Thanks Anton.
It took pretty much the full 4 weeks after submission. But some get it back in a few days. Just keep checking, don't bother outside office hours, and don't forget the + 7 hrs over GMT. I checked mine yesterday at 18:00GMT and again at 21:00GMT when it appeared.

Congratulations!

351 points are not a bad score.
