Hello everybody,
Maha cleared the Real Exam SCJP2 with 93%.
I really owe a lot of this credit to you all .
My sincere thanks to Jim,Tony,and Paul.
I thought I answered all the qstns correctly.
I think may be I lost 3 qstns due to carelessnes.
Otherwise the qstns are clearly worded. I got lots and lots
of MULTIPLE choice qstns, which took me more time to check
each and every answer. May be in that I missed some. Anyway I am not too thrilled or too sad about this 93%. I finished the exam , the first round of answering in 1:15 min. The remaining 45 min I revised. The qstns were not too particular about remembering the syntax of methods etc. It tests the core concepts. Once again thank you all. I was preparing for the exam seriously this week. This was the reason for my reduced participation here . . Out of 59 qstns may be 6-7 written ans. type/ around 30 were MULTIPLE CHOICE and the remaining single answer type. So approcimatelt , you got to check (30*5) extra answers to check in the multiple choices. May be I was careless in that.
Once again I really..really thank you ALL for all your support.

No. I didn't get any from Applet/net. But paint/update are IN THE objectives. YOu may get from them. There were no deprecated methods asked. I didn't get any syntax error qstns. But if you get 1 you try to answer the qstn presuming something than leaving the qstn blank.

Mani,
I am a Electronics and Communication Engineer from Anna University Chennai( Madras ) India. I was working as Senior System Analyst in a software firm related to all Communication Software using 'C' language for 4 years. Now our family is in RTP/Raleigh/NorthCorolina/USA. At present I am working on a project using Java/Servlets/jsp/jdbc. I learnt Java through self study and started this process nearly more than a year back. I started learning Java for this project which I mentioned above.
I decided to go for certification this year Jan only. I used Thinking in Java/Java in a Nutshell/Java Language Specification (JLS) / Online Java Doc/ and I used to follow javacert.com regularly where I came to know about Marcus and Kathy
Ok regarding the mock exams I saved them for the last 1 month. After I read R&H and Bill Brogden's book. Then I started taking the mock exams. I started from the easier ones (from others comments I came to know which are easy and which are hard) and I noted down in a text file date/mockexam/% got/where I wentwrong/which area I need to study like that. This really really helped me to gauge myself. I started getting above 88% in the first round. Nearly more than 30 exams I would have taken I think. From this chart I shuffeled the exams and repeated them. In the 2nd round I made it a point I should not repeat the same mistake like that. Even then I did repeat some In the last week , this week I was getting on average 97-98% in all the exams. So I thought better I take the exam before there is any BIG change in the objectives like that I used Khalid test as a learning tool. In Chris alone 1st round I got around 80%
Suma,
I did get 1 qstn on Grid Bag layout.

Next month means you have 3 weeks to spare isn't ?
I assume you would have finished all your ground work. One thing I can suggest to you is just try to read all the posts in this forum. Say you take 4-5 days depending upon how much time you can spare. While reading the post, Maha's advice is, when you read a the FIRST POST in a thread, try to answer YOURSELF. Then continue to verify your thinking. This way definitly your confidence will improve.
One good thing about this site is NOT catagorized by objectivewise. If you want mixed-up qstns just read them page by page. Otherwise search for a particular word thread/garbage like that and read. It depends upon your liking.
From this week itself take 1 or 2 exams per day to get used to 'taking the Exam' feeling. This is also important. You shdn't get tensed at the exam. While taking the exam DO NOT refer to anything. And my another sincere suggestion note down in a text file MOckExamName/DateTime/totqstns/yourcorrectansers/% got/your comments/area need to study. What I did was the previous day of the exam I went through all my mistakes in this text file.
While doing this process you know yourself which area to study, what to do next like that.

Maha received the SCJP2 Certificate from Sun today by mail . Last week the same day (Saturday) I wrote the exam. I didn't really expect it so soon.(within a week) May be Sun is speeding up the process. The pack contains the Certificate(without the % ) and a Sun Certified Java Programmer badge, and an agreement to sign up and send back to Sun to use the Logo artwork under some coditions. The badge is small. The certificate looks nice.

Dear Maha,
Congrats
I passed the exam too but I dont know why I went really low just 73%. So, I am writing it again. I have benn getting consistenlty above 80% in most of the tests (Marcus, Jxam, JDCert, tester.jar, pgjc-engine.zip and many online sites). Also at the Javaranch I have never got below 88%. But during the exam I took only 45 minutes and could not really read carefully. I am aware of most of the topics. Kindly guide me I want to do it well this time and want to score high. Is it possible to try for a 100?
Regards,
Lionel
