Thanks god � Passed SCJP 5.0 yesterday scoring 81%


I want to thank all people who helped me during my study, specially my mother, brother and friends: shady, nour, mourad for their continuous support, also special thanks to all people who wrote posts in this great forum.

Information:

Java experience: currently I am a PHP programmer, I didn�t write 1 line of java code since 3 years, when I took java in my university(in egypt), also at that year I studied for SCJP 1.3 but I didn�t attempt the exam.

Study duration: 3 months � 10 days (beside work)

Study Material:

1-Complete java 2 certification study guide, Fifth Edition � Philip Heller
(Don�t study from that book if u r attempting the 5.0 exam� it is USELESS)

2- Java 2 v5.0 (Tiger) New Features � Herbert Schildt (Good book)

3- Sun generics tutorial.

4- K&B (unfortunately... it came late so I used the �2 Min Drill� and �Exam watch� sections and solved some self test questions �which helped a lot)

5- The Great Whizlabs Simulator (if we put aside �wrong question answers� , �out of scope questions� and �the DnD question scoring� )

6-This Forum

Notes:

1-Study Hard ( try to understand every thing )
2-Take Notes
3-Make �Code� for every Objective... The exam is performance based so if don�t have mush experience �. Build one as I did
4-Solve as mush exams as you can �
5-Make general rules and abbreviations ( I combined operators precedence � descending order- in one word �UASC BSCA� where U=Unary A=Arithmetic S=Shift �.etc )
6-Read posts in this forum

Final note: whizlabs exams are mush harder than the real exam� this is for our sake � but don�t let your score in whizlabs decrease your self confidence (I got 62% in the last whizlabs exam and that was one day b4 the real exam.


Wishing you all GOOD LUCK in your exams
