I passed SCJP 6 with 88%. I am so glad I went in for the 6 instead of the 5 exam. Only 1 question (on Console) was from the new topics.

Anyone know how long it takes for the certificate to arrive in the mail ? Or to show up on the web-site they have on the printed results ?

There were a couple of other test takers with me and they mentioned something about a T-shirt being sent by Sun to all people who get certified this month. They didn't ask for my shirt size during the exam

I'd say the distribution was pretty much equal amongst all the topics. Lots of very basic (but tricky) questions too.

I was a JAVA beginner last year. I started off with the Head First Java book. Then moved on to the K&B book. In the last 1 month, I did about 4-5 passes of K&B and took lots of mock exams (mostly from links posted around here or using Google). I also took a mock exam from the the CD of the K&B book (MasterExam). Finally, I did the exercises from the K&B book over and over again. On the last day, I just brushed over the 2 minute drill from K&B.
If you face difficulty with Collections and Generics, I'd highly recommend Chapter 16 from Head First Java. That simplified things in that area for me.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
