SCJP - 79%

Yeah!!!

I passed yesterday and I scored 79%. I would have like more than 80% but it's ok!

To pass it:

The book of Kate and Bates -> The must!!! (I read it and read back the two minutes drill and many "exam watch" just before the exam)
examulator.com/phezam/question.php
javablackbelt.com (some exams)
developpez.net (huge french community)
The suport of Dave Allan (be carreful there is any fails!)

I don't speak very well english (this why I don't answer the good solution to some question certainly - mainly for OO questions, a subject that I understand really well and where I did 60%).

So with the Kate & Bates book, even if we don't speak very well english, it's really possible to pass the exam! All subjects are clear and it's funny to read (I certainly don't understood all the subtleties :-)! This book is even more difficult than the exam and then the really exam is more simple than I expected.

So thank you very much for your excellent book!

The next step for me... SCWCD, do you wrote a book for this?

Best regards from switzerland
