SCJP 5.0 Cleared !!

Hi Ranchers,

Many thanks to you all, Kathy, Bert and Khalid M for helping me get certified. This was a wonderful experience. I have a full time job and am a Windows Mobile Developer, I took the exam for the luv of Java.

I could manage a score of 66% only but I am still happy to sail thru.
I devoted 2/3 hours on weekdays and 5/6 hours on weekends, for last 3 months. I think I could have given the exam 20 days earlier.

This is what I will advise all busy professionals to do for SCJP5.0

1st phase (1st 45 days):
1) I completed Khalid and Mughal book first (optional for u..).
2) Then completed K & B ( all 11 chapters, A to Z).
3) In K&B Solve the questions at the end of all chapters RELIGIOUSLY!!
4) For API contents, be very thorough with 5 code examples (3 pattern searching , 2 tokenizing from K&B).
5) For generics & collections memorize tables 7.4 and 7.5 in chapter 7, K&B. This comes pretty handy in exam.

2nd phase (next 30 days):

1) Get the whizlabs Java 5.0 simulator.
2) Solve all 6 mock exams RELIGIOUSLY !!
3) At the end of each exam, pause and go through your mistakes. Make a note of them.
4) Whatever you score in your final whizlabs mock exam, you will get 15-20%
in your real exam.

If you are able to get 50%+ in whizlabs last exam,and time is running out, go ahead and take real exam. I was consistently scoring 49-52% in whizlab mock exams.

That's all about it, from my experience of last 6 years of coding, the best of coders have ability to shrink the code in terms of size and make it more efficient. They are able to grasp logic in new files of code very quickly and develop it further, but when you take certification exams,it's a different ball game alltoghether, hence as long as you pass...be happy and relax.

Time to watch the world cup and wimbledon now !!

SCMAD will be next.
