How I passed SCJP

Hey guys!
Just passed SCJP 5.0 with 89% (64/72). It's pretty good for me (although I was shooting for > 90%). It took me 3.5 months to get ready for the test. I usually took about 1.5 hours a day to study, although many days I didn't study at all, because I go to high school and play basketball. Here's what I did:
1. I read K&B which is the best book for SCJP. Spent about a week per chapter. Averaged 65% on exams at the end of each chapter.
2. Bought Whizlabs test prep. It is pretty good, although alot of stuff is off topic. I did all the tests except for the final one. Averaged 75%.
3. Bought Enthuware JQPlus. Wow! Guys, if you really want to pass the test you just have to get it. The real exam and UI is almost identical to those in JQPlus. I wouldn't have done it without this program. Thank you Enthuware! I averaged 86% on the tests (very close to the real score!)
4. Did 2 exams from K&B book, got 83% on both.

The key to passing the exam is to take as many mock exams as you can. After every exam taken you have to go through the answers you got wrong and understand them! If you don't do it then you will keep making the same mistakes over and over again! Good luck to all of you!

P.S. Oh, I forgot one important thing! Javaranch has helped me enormously. If I had a question or a doubt, Javaranch would be the only place for me to go. Everyday I would go to this forum and look for questions that other people ask. Some of them were very helpfull. Thank you Javaranch. See you in the SCJD forum!
