Hi all,

I have cleared SCJP 1.4 with 86%.. It's won't be possible without java ranch forum and ranchers....

it's my pleasure to thank you all of in this forum for clarifying my doubts and some times even silly doubts..

I thank Kathy & Sierra for their wonderful book and without that I couldn't imagine this score.. Initially I bought K&B 1.5 version to take up SCJP 1.5, but due to time limit, I have taken 1.4.. (infact i had the preparation of 13 days...)

And also I thank Dan Chisholm for his wonderful question banks which not only helped for the exam and I also learned lots of new thing.. And thanks for all the mock exam providers in the java ranch forum link... since, it has a many link to mention all of the names..

As a next step, I am planning to take SCWCD.. I have Head First Servlets and JSP book.. Whether I need any other book for it? Kathy has written Head First Java, but they also written separate book for SCJP.. like that they have written book separately for SCWCD..?

Once again I thank all of you for your support and expecting to extend the same..

Micheal John

All the question are all having more or less same complextiy and style from K&B books exercise.

Not as complex as from Dan's mock exam..

Infact I have gone thru' all the chapter exercise from K&B for more than 2 times... and it's enough I think..

Collections they have asked 2 to 3 questions:
1. One Question from Set ..about the order
2. which one should used for cache

I think more questions on Thread...
a. wait(),notify(),notifyAll() given scenarios

And garbage collection, when the object will be eligible for GC.
infact I got very low score in GC.. I don't know why?
