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.
Hi, I passed the SCJP with the magic score of 71%. I have been seeing the discussions on Javaranch for about a month and thouroughly enjoyed besides learning. I haven't worked on Java, though I have limited exposure to NetDynamics, besides having worked on C++ and CORBA. I found the exam tough and din't do well in the awt section. Thanks again for all the help and hope to participate in the discussions. Keep up the good work! Regards,
Hi Chidananda Congratulations to you! Don't worry about the score, main things is that you have passed. I missed the exam in the first trial with 69% which is just 1 question below the magic. Now I did it the second time and much better. Take care Jakob

Jakob: I felt really bad having known that you missed with just 1 qstn. However, its nice that you are determined and are participating here. I am sure you should be able to make it next time. All the best. Regds. - satya
Congrats Chidananda Sulur ! Well done on becoming certified. The exam is a tough one indeed. If it wouldn't be as tough it would loose credibility for sure. I have noticed that recruitment agencies love SCJP candidates. After all the hard work it is now fair to say that you have a good idea what Java is all about, which I guess is the reason why we all hang out at the ranch. Good Luck for the future. Andreas
