hii.. yesterday... i took my scjp exam and cleared with 90%
much credit goes to javaranchers ..who always entertained my post... Thanks ranchers v.much... During my prepration time .i have always have atleast one browser window open having javaranch site... as i have 24hrs net connection... i never closed it. and to be honest i think javaranch is not only a forum its java family... where people having nice time having fun with java. i love this forum and its decent atmosphere...
well now regarding my prepration... i studied K&B (more than 3 times) and khallid mughal (1 time)... The test is 100% from K&B..its a wonderfull book written in v.plain english and with lots of humor ..i enjoyed it.. ...and hats off to bertbates/ kathy serra..
reading khalid mughal do give deep knowledge but its not at all necessary for this scjp exam...you can read it to gain knowledge and increase confidence therefore..
though i did 6 wrong question..but all question was from K&B surely...(maybe the set of question i got are from there)...
but still all ranchers said accurate about % score in marcus green exam, and K&B mock exam.. if you score more than 85% in them you will definetly get above 90% ... both test are almost(95%) to the same level specially K&B master mock exam.... earlier i solved DAN exam and used to get around 60% ...becuase it teaches me new concept i haven't read i K&B....
I have finally given follwoing mock exam in last two days
Marcus green 1.4 88% K&B master exam 87% jqplus(freeversion) 73% sun microsystem practice exam ( 20 questions) 70% K&B (learnkey*-1) 76% K&B( learnkey*-2) 86%
**these learnkey exam were in cd i got with K&B...
though i have khallid mughal test and other mock exam on internet to give but i didn't give due to lack of time... I make the priority of mock exam to be given as stated in above list... then as all people say getting around 85% in K&B and marcus green do show your prepration to scjp main...i trust their comments... and its definetly true...
Thanks again ranchers..for your support

Hi Amit, How much you scored in Danchisloms mocks. I'm scoring 79 to 80 in some exams, but some time it's going down to 72 or 73. Is this good score ? [ June 28, 2005: Message edited by: Srinivasa Raghavan ]
Congratulations! You told us what worked and that is best!
congratulations on your career!
The K& B test is still a struggle for me now. I'm relatively new to study for exam.
Thanks B. Harris
