Cleared SCJP 5.0 with %75

Well I finally did. My score was a little bit dissapointing, but hey I still passed easily. My scores for the sections were as follows:

Declarations %91
Flow Control %81
API Contents %60
Concurreny %62
OO Concepts %50
Collections %70
Fundamentals %100

I prepared with the K&B book, Enthuware SCJP 5 and Whizlabs. I highly recommend Enthuware. Their test simulator is very close to the real exam and it is much cheaper than Whizlabs. You also get a total of 11 tests as opposed to 6. My average for all 11 Enthuware exams was about %72.

Another point that I must mention is the master exams. They are harder than the real exam. They have a crappy interface and are tough because they don't tell you how correct answers their are. I only got %54 and %58 on them but I passed the real exam with a fairly decent score.

Thanks to Bert Bates and Kathy Sierra for a great book. Javaranch is great too. Also thanks to Enthuware for a test simulator that is fantastic. Finally to all of those preparing for the exam my advice is to stay positive and don't get discouraged. I only got %33 on the first Whizlabs exam. Just keep at it and you will do it.

congratulations! I am making 70% in whizlabs and am with fear to make the examination again, I made it in April qdo took off in maximum 59% and arrived in the day of the examination I took off 57% and I did not pass. Yesterday I was to make the final examination of whizlabs and took off only 55%, never vi so difficult examination how much this end of whizlabs. That tip you to give to me?

Jared, who cares about the score. Passing is passing. Celebrate!

Camilo, just really concentrate on the exam. I do not think you would always have to have a lower score on the exam then what you are doing on these tests. Stress and adrenaline can make you perform better too.
