Hi all,

First and foremost let me thanks Java ranch , K&B ,Khalid moghul for their valuable contribution which helped me to clear exam.

I am really shocked that Real SCJP exam was not tough than mock papers.

Once again I thanks to one you and all.

Here are the experience about my exam and tips from me.

The exam paper was easier than mock papers I did and nothing was tough expect some questions on Threads and garbage collection was slightly confused .

Most questions were similar to K&B mock and also Marcus Green (but not same ) ..Hats to them

This is how I followed up ....

1. Read the book K&B (4 times) and Khalid moghul.
2. Did lot of coding to understand the concept lot.
3. Did all the mocks available on Javaranch.
4. Noted down the weak points and prepared some notes myself.
5. Did all the questions posted in Javaranch.
6. Got all doubts cleared from Ranchers. Welldone Ranchers.

Tips to those who are waiting to give exam.......

1.Study and code , Study and code ,Study and code , until your are clear with the concepts.
2.Do lot of Mock papers available freely .Specially do K&B mock , Marcus Green mock , Don mocks paper (for greater understanding of concepts).
3.Don't get disappointed because of low score in Mock papers.
4.Note down the points and learn the weaker points.
5.Spend more time on those which you are not fimiliar.
6.Join Javaranch forum and check out the questions asked by others and try to answer them . also learn from it.
7.Dont spend more time on one question in exam which is tough , carry on to next and finally come back to that question when time permits(lot time is available for that).
8..Be cool and confident .Always be optimistic.

Any one who needs any advice or tips or notes are welcome to ask me

Now I need help from ranchers and all ........
Please let me know ,

1. I am not able to login to Certdatabase, what should I do?
2. when will I get the certification and logo ?
3. How should I login to check marks and also to check whether my name and address is enter correct or not?
