Hi All Ranchers,
Today I did it after about 6 months of part-time preparation . Thanks a lot to K&b and Khalid & Rolf Books,both of them will improve your understanding of hard topics.

I was somehow not satisfied with this score but I did expect to do so because I didn't answer much more mock exams (I did only 4-5) ,so
try to take (I planned to do so but wasn't able to because of time-limitations) 2-mock exams daily within a week (total = 14 mock exam) and keep track of your records to indentify weak points and recover.

I'd like to give a some tips :

- Try to have a plan.
- Read K&B at least twice and answer self-test questions carefully.
- JQ+ and Whizlabs.com are a great questions bank.
- Review.
- Do as much as possible mock exams to be able to manage your time andidentify your own weack points.
- Discuss any ideas you want online here(SCJP forum).

-Try not to take much more time on a question(at most 2 mins)
-Go through all questions for first-round review.
-Begin to answer one-by-one
-Mark unsolved or trick question
-Becareful to manage your time to be able to review(I wasn't able to review at all)
-Have enough sleep on this night

Today Exam wasn't hard at all,Just sharp questions most of them were on Exception Handling and little (very tricky) in Garbage Collections,
most of other sections was easy and only ONE fill-in question. Again,Do As much as you can Mock exams from anywhere as you can get online . This will give you an approximate range of your possible

Preparing for the SCJD is a long-way but I'm now eligable for Grabage Collection.
