Hi friends,

Yesterday i cleared the SCJP 1.4 exam in Madrid with a smashing score of 91% .

First off, i would like to thank JavaRanch, it's moderators, authors, and of corse all the ranchers (greenhorns and ranch hands). This site is THE ABSOLUTE BEST web site in the worlds for java.

I would not of done this without the help of god and my family.
Also i would like to thank Kathy and Bert for there EXCELENT, down to earth book.


1. Read K&B once
2. Rules Round Up
3. Read Khalid's book once
4. Rules Round Up
5. A few Marcus Green's 1.2 exams (
6. Rules Round Up - 100%
7. Read K&B a second time
8. Did many of Dan Chisholm's exams (
9. Did many of Marcus Green's 1.4 exams (

Trust me people, you can never do enough mocks, just don't do too many in one day.

Once again thank you EVERYONE for your kind help and support.
I'm now off to do the SCJD project. I will still be in the SCJP forum to help fellow ranchers.

Cheers, Marzo.

Thanks people.

Jayant, K&B is more than enough, but you can read Khalid's once to re-enforce your knowledge. But just stick to K&B for the actual exam.

how similar or diff it is from real and what kind of score you can expect.
