Alright guys, finally I managed to clear it. I was hoping to pass it, got 83%. Pretty satisfied with it. It was the toughest exam I gave, even tougher than the mock exams, you can say as tough as the final mock exam of whizlabs simulator. Sat there for 2 complete hours to make sure I did ok.

Thanks to you guys. I feel responsible in sharing my preparation pattern for the test.

1) Finished Programmer's Guide to Java Certification, A: A Comprehensive Primer Second Edition by Khalid Mughal.

2) Did Marcus's tests.

3) Did free 100 questiosns from

4) Read Kathy and Bates ( this was like a quick reading over the whole book)

5) Whizlabs.

Took me total 31 days ( a month ) to do all this, plus my concentration wasn't too good either. Would just chill out some days, and sometimes studying with music, sometimes even loud really depends on how everyone is comfortable studying. I guess all I'm trying to say is its an easy one guys, if you can give in 2 weeks of serious studying it should be alright. If I can do it, anybody me on that.


On to SCWCD now...
