Passed the SCJP 2 with 96% today.

Got 2 questions wrong (which should have been 96.7%, dont know why sun takes the floor instead of ceil).

One as I expected, in threads and the other in java.lang.package . Am sure have made some very silly mistake.

Materials used:
-K&B and a few pages from Khalid Mughal (didn't have enough time)
-Marcus' exams (it's uncanny how close your actual score is to these)
-Dan's exams

Would like to thank everybody who posts in the forums. Each post you read, you either learn something new or refresh your knowledge of some topic.

A BIG thank you to Kathy and Bert for their book. Have bought three other books from the same authors and series since I started preparing for SCJP.

Thinking of changing my signature to Bert Rocks!! (yes, biodiesel rocks too)

Seems to be a problem with some kind of mock exam you used?
