Just passed the SCJP

Just passed the SCJP with 83%. I studied about one month for the test, but took the last two days off work to cram. What I found most helpful was:
Java 2 Exam Cram by Bill Brogden
Rules Roundup
Mock exam at
I think most mock exams were harder than the actual test. But I think the scores on the mock exams are pretty good predictors of the score on the actual test.
Don't get discouraged by poor scores on mock exams.
During my two days of cramming, my scores on the mock exams went up from about 55% to 85%.

Good luck to all of you!
