Passed SCJP with 90 %
I passed SCJP with 90% in last week. I thank you all at Javaranch - Ur queries, answers and experience has indeed helped me. I also found the round up games and mockexam list
especially useful. I am sharing my experience which would
be specially useful for those who have constraints of
time or some other type.
I am a working woman having a small kid, raising him all
alone, only with help of old parents and hence i had
constraints of time and energy. Also i don't have c/
c++ background - i am basically Oracle professional.
So i found my score to be a reason of great happiness.
I underwent special coaching for exam based on RHE from
an IITian. I used RHE for preparation and later Exam Cram.
I solved around 12 to 15 mock exams, some of them even
twice, since my initial score was not good. I had to take
3 weeks off before exam and last 8 to 10 days, i was
preparing for almost 12 hours per day. I found round up
games, review questions on jaworski site useful for
clarity of concepts. Among mock exams i found that following
together simulate real test qtns to a large exent - Marcus
Green 3 exams, Jxam - 200 qtns, Jaworski - 171 qtns, applied
reasoning, majji, boone, khalid, exam cram.

Can't control myself from being senti -
My parents' support and encouragement formed a driving force !
My kid's smile and activities offered good relaxation, of course !!
And yee - 3 Cs, pay a lot - Confidence, Concentration and Cool .. !

Sakhi Mandakini.
It is a matter of great pride to have a friend like you. Ashwini & I both are very proud of your achievements. We plan to visit there soon for Diwali. We will find time to visit (If you are avaiable, from the great demand you would now have).
