hi, I am posting the message because I am the sufferer and I am also going to take the SCWCD 5 in next 2-3 months. I just cleared the SCJP with 77%. But I am not satisfied at all considering my preparation. I had been studying K&B for last 6 months and also i am working in the JAVA domain. I have confidence on all.I studied the whole book 2-3 times.
but I had to lot of struggle to get the said mark in the exam. On the other hand , My friend cleared it with 98% . Once I spoke to him, he told that he just prepared the dumps for 15 days and memorized the answers.
So, as The Sun cannot stop this malpractices. The question database should be updated in very frequently.
Please sorry for those who feel hurt in my statement. This is a particular case I mentioned not for all. Thanks.
Same case happened with me. I prepared very well, read K&B more than 5 times. but got only 73%.And a friends of mine, he is working on .net and prepared foe SCJP 5.0 just for 2 weeks and got 93%.He said that there are lots of short cut(direct questions) available to crack it.I feel very stupid as far as marks are concerned.Though I am satisfied with my knowledge in Core Java but not with marks.

Sun understands that there are illegal sites on the web and they do everything they can to shut them down. In addition Sun updates the exams as often as possible.
To me the good news about cheaters is that they still have to show up for work on that first day and then somehow try to convince people that they know what they're doing when actually they don't.
I think whenever someone talks about using "dumps" the question should be "What happens the first time your boss asks you to actually write some code?"
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Thanks to all. Bates , it is correct. Although I got less mark, but I am now full confidence on JAVA 1.5. I will not face any problem during any discussion on java coding related to optimizing, or new APIs ........ After reading the book K&B throughly , I am now more interested on JAVA application.
