Hi guys,
Took SCJP 1.4 this morning. Cleared with 93% score.

Questions were pretty easy, except some from threads on which i had to ponder a little. I finished the test in around 50 mins after which i reviewed my answers for another 10 mins and then opted to see my score .

To all those who are preparing for this test, i would recommend the book K&B plus mock tests from Marcus Green and Dan Chisholm. This would easily see you through with a good score.

Sincerest thanks to Kathy and Bert for their wonderful piece of work. You guys have contributed the maximum for my success today.
Special thanks to all you ranchers for your excellent support throughout.

Hi ChandraKant,

Congratulation On You Success. You took even less than a minute per question . That's really awesome. :-)

I too agree with you with the fact that K&B is the best book if someone wants
to prepare for SCJP. Moreover a few mock exams 3-4 days before the actual exam boosts up the confidence.
For all the SCJP aspirants I would suggest 2 months of preparation with one hours everyday.

Chandrakant it would be nice if you could share on what topic you lost marks .

I got 57/61 correct. I lost 3 in Threads (not very tough questions but still didnt get them right). I lost 1 in Language Fundamentals (very silly mistake).
