ME2 got boasting rights- got SCJP 98%

On 25th Sep I passed the SCJP exam scoring 98%. I cannot imagine which solitary question (in declarations and access control ) went wrong.
Frankly after giving the Beta exam, reading the JLS, Core Java, and doing the standard Certification books and mock exams, the SCJP proved to be a very very damp squib.
Let me also express my gratitude to the Java Ranch for the fantastic sight. This is one good thing in life which actually does comes free. I might also add that the discussion on these forums are often qualitatively superior that what is required for the SCJP !! In other words if you want to really learn Java, and enjoy it, then this is the site.
I definitely feel that the SCJP exam should widen its coverage to test on the net packages and should qualitatively deepen its coverage of Collections, Threads, IO.
