Hi All

I managed to clear SCJP 1.5 with 77%. I have no prior experience in Java and many tried to discourage me from appearing for 1.5 as they felt the topics would be hard to master for someone like me

However, books like K&B and Khalid Mughal (for OOPs)helped me a lot as much as mocks like Marcus Green ( i really must thank Marcus as I used to send him emails regarding some obscure query of mine and he would promptly respond),Whizlabs (very good software) ,skillfox and javablackbelt(amazing site again though it has more of 1.4 questions) .

I prepared for this exam without having jdk1.5 installed on my machine for the major part of the preparation but a big thanks to java ranch and the numerous queries posted there everyday that helped me understand many of the core concepts.

Thanks once again.

Wow Deepthi!

It's impressive that you were able to accomplish this without a compiler

Thanks a lot Bert ....i realise now that writing exams like SCJP involves plenty of code writing and I am definitely going to make it a point to install all the required softwares and practice well for my SCWCD exam.

Thanks once again ....your book is truly awesome!

Congratulations Deepthi!

Do the questions in SCJP 5.0 exam are equal in level of complexity as that of Whizlabs scjp5.0 mock questions?

Please reply me,
Thank you,
