Today I appeared for SCJP 1.4 and passed it with 72%(I know this is a average score)...
First I would like to thank Thanks to Khalid-Mughal book..and thanks to all ranchers for solving my queries and for giving 24/7 support...
I would like to tell all of you that solve as many mock exams as you can...
Some of the mock exams I found tougher than the actual SCJP exam and most of the question are similar to mock exam questions.. Tricks used were same..
SO mock exams really really helps a lot...
I am not advertising any exam but the one I found useful is:

1) Mock exam created by Valentin Crettaz:
This exam has lot of questions about overloading,overriding and nested

classes..tough and good exam...I look at this exam as a learning tool

2)Mock exam provided by Vodoo Exam:
If you do a lot of practice with mock exams you will find actual exam easy..

Hi Swati,
First congrates on passing SCJP.
I am also preparing and set to give exam by end week of March.
Currently i have read K&b once, and solving some online free mock tests.
But my scores are between 50-60%.
I facing and getting confused between overloading and overridding problems and on Threads.
Can you suggest some somethingon this, on how can improve on this.
Can you please forward little more mock test.

One more question, is the exam really tough as compared to mock tests which we solve. i am heard lots on drag drop questions which are tough as compared to other questions.
Can you please help me out.

Thanks in advance
