Hi everyone! I passes the SCJP with 92%.
It was easy. I however regret missing out those 8%.
Thanks RHE(Robert & Hellers Book), Marcus(, JavaRanch, Bill's site( I took help from anywhere and everywhere. The exam simulation JSecure( also helped. Its got a similar look and feel of the real exam.
Most of the questions were similar to the RHE book and simulation.
Marcus sometimes I wonder why you carry out this work so selflessly.
Thanks once again.
ps: Could anyone give a list of Developer Exam resources.

Dear Richard,
I am also preparing for SCJP. I have accumlated many books
including RHE,Cram,Boone almost every publication.
i have also appeared for different mock test. the result
is not very satisfactory. it appears from ur message that
RHE suffices every need. but i am confused by the variety
of questions and approaches followed by different books.
pl.advise if RHE suffices all that now onwards i can
concentrate on this only.

Praveen, RHE is sufficient. Do it with your heart and you need not touch any other book. That's a guarantee.

Congrats on your score! I too, have a similar question to the one above re: RHE. If RHE covers all you need to know, why do so many of the other practice exams seem be so unlike the RHE exam?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
subject: Got 92%.
It's not a secret anymore!
