This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Recently found out that I passed the SCJD. See my score below:
The maximum number of points is 400, to pass you need a score of 320. Section Summary: Section Max Actual Points Points General Con: 100 90 Documentation: 70 65 OOD: 30 30 GUI: 40 26 Locking: 80 80 Data Store: 40 40 Network Server: 40 30 Total: 400 361
Thanks to all the great people on this forum, and especially Andrew Monkhouse =).
Good luck to all of you out there studying to take the SCJD.
I didn't prepare at all before taking the exam. I think that if you have written all the code that you submit then you won't have any problems with the exam.
As for books when writing the app... I had Kathey Sierras and Bert Bates book for the SCJP&SCJD. However, I think that this forum provides all the necassary info needed in order to succeed with the assignment.
