SCJP cleared with 95%

Hi all, i am excited to be certified with 95% in SCJP. I got 58 correct out of 61 questions and took 1hr and 15min for the exam. I had worked a lot of mock exams online which helped me in preparing. I used Khalid Mughal's book which is the best book for SCJP from my experience. His mock exam was tougher than real exam. I had scored 90% in it and that gained me real confidence to face the exam. It is really important to program small snippets as you prepare for the exam. Unless you worked programs it is difficult to get a good score in exam.
Got a HEAD FIRST book for SCWCD exam. It is a very interactive book and i never get bored reading it continuously. 'Hats off' to B,B&K for such a wonderful book. I hope to succeed in my next exam too. Thank you.

Thank you everybody,

Bert Bates, Anand B Raju, Dilip Gamage, Joyce Lee, venkatasadasivareddy voruganti, Thanks a lot for your concern.

venkatasadasivareddy voruganti,
If you are following K&B's book it is sufficient. I would suggest you to follow only one book at a time and take as many mock exams as possible in the net. Afterall what matters is how you apply the acquired knowledge on the questions asked.
If you wish to take the exam simulator by Khalid, then got to this link
It is tougher than real exam so it surely helps you in getting confidence. Also visit for free trial mock exams.

Thank you Bert Bates for the wonderful book on Servlets. It is interesting and i feel the real programming starts now and SCJP is only a stepping stone. Servlets are really interesting and the way you explained gives a feeling of real time experience. I have left the party mood of SCJP and now seriously following Head First in Servlets and JSP. The real test is here... I would require all of your support for clearing doubts and queries. Thank you.
Nikhil Kanjulli Menon.
