I Passed SCJD (barely)

I passed. Phew. Waiting for the results (6 1/2 weeks) was killing me.

But I can't help being a little bit disappointed. My score is beneath, but I don't understand what happened. How can I have 0 for the networking? Maybe some stupid mistake that caused network failure on the testers platform? I tested on a windows network and it all worked fine.

But anyway, I passed. I guess that's all that matters. Many thanks to everybody on the forum here. I have been reading tons of posts that helped me a lot. Thanks to Andrew also. I loved his book.

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 100
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 28
Locking (maximum = 80): 58
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 0

See you in the next forum (SCWCD).

Being certified is like being pregnant - either you are or you ain't, and you my friend, are (certified, not pregnant).

Think about all the people that put in the effort and didn't pass. I'm sure they're more than envious of the position you are in.
