Hi all:
After working on this exam for 4 months, I finally got the SCJD certification.
Here is my score

The maximum possible score is 400;
the minimum to pass is 320.

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 99
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 31
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

I appreciate all helps I got from every Rancher.
Good luck for those who are still working on SCJD.

I read Andrew's book and it did help me a lot to
clarify my confusion about the SCJD instruction and
give me good explanation to some concepts.
I also referred to some Java Pattern books like "Applied Java patterns" and dived into this forum every time I got question (fortunately I can get answers every time).

I would say the locking mechanism is the most difficult part in this assignment. I followed the suggestion from some posts in this forum and have tested it several times. But I still lost most point on locking.

Good Luck

I agree. Here's the link:
