Hi all Java folks!
Passed my SCJA certification fridays and got 86%. I'm very happy with the result. My thanks to Cameron McKenzie for SCJA study guide and SCJA exam questions, I found some small errors in some questions, and thought some of the questions where difficult to answer due to interpretation of the question and answers. But I really think that the books are great, good job. Thanks to all of you who post questions and answers too, theese helps alot.
My Score of 86% composed of the following:
Fundamental O-O Concepts: 87%
UML Representation of O-O Concepts: 83%
Java Implementation of O-O Concepts: 100%
Algorithm Design and Implementation: 100%
Java Development Fundamentals: 66%
Java Platforms and Integration Technologies: 80%
Client Technologies: 100%
Server Technologies: 71%

Going for the SCJP soon...

I used Cameron McKenzie books SCJA study guide and SCJA exam questions. I study 5 days a week for about a month or so alltogether (perhaps 6 hours a day), I went for some other courses inbetween so I wasen't studying continiously. I have worked with some java programming before but not with J2EE or J2ME so I lacked knowledge in some areas.
I wasen't in a hurry to take my certification but eventually I felt pretty sure about the objects in SCJA.
Thanks for the congratulations and good luck with your studies.
