Java Gurus!!!
Today I passed SCJP. I got 85%. IMHO questions were easy. Thanks to folk here at Javaranch. It was very useful visiting this site everyday. I will visit this site daily and will participate in the discussion.

Btw there was one question had option of Deprecated method stop(). I was surprised.
Remaining questions were easy. It is not necessary to take every mock test available on net.
My score in mock test
a) brodgen - 71%
b) Marus - approx 78%
Good luck and thanks folks.

Congtatulations !!!
As Psethura has mentioned, he did get a question on the deprecated methods. What whould we answer?
If it is a part of multiple choice answers should we select it or not??
Can any one shed some light on it.

Also, what do you think? Should we select deprecated method option in multiple choice or not?

Congrats on the score.
Personally, I didn't have any depreciated options on my exam. Therefore, it depends on the circumstances.
If it is a question with only one possible answer, I would suggest looking at the other answers first as one of them is probably the correct answer.
If it is a part of a multi-choice answer, I would select it if it is applicable. While it is depreciated, it is still a part of the API. Just read the question carefully.
