Passed SCJD

Hello all,

I have finally passed the Sun Certified Java Developer exam with a score of 346/400.
Here are my score reports on each section :
Documentation: 70 61
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 12
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 23

I failed for the first time because I submitted a wrong version (an older version) of the jar submission file. I resubmitted my assignment at 6/Feb/2007 and got my result today.

Before going to this exam I had a previous experience in developing Multithreaded applications in C# and In developing Web Based Applications using ASP.NET, ASP and JSP and Servlets.

As a preparation material I have studied designed patterns and Object Oriented Analysis and Design. For the design patterns I have studied the extraordinary book "Head First Design Patterns" and for the object oriented design I have studied full object oriented system which is an ATM system available at the following url : http://www.math.gordon.edu/local/courses/cs211/ATMExample/

While working on the Sun Certified Java Developer assignment I also was reading the another wonderful book "Head First Servlets and JSP".Preparing for SCWCD made understand the MVC design pattern very well, which I used in my GUI.

Regarding the GUI I was expecting a low grade because I am not a good GUI designer and regarding the Network Server I don't know why I got that grade.

And after passing this tough exam, I have to thank Bert Bates, Kathy Sierra,
Brayan Basham for their wonderful books on the SCJP, SCWCD, Design Patterns.
And i have to confess that reading the Programmer exam book by Bert Bates,Kathy Sierra and Bryan basham was a turning point in my life.

I also would to thank all javaranch forum as it was my first resource of help on SCJD issues.

Finally, Barry Gaunt I will really miss you a lot. Please let us see you in the SCWCD forum.

Thanks to all and good luck for everyone.
