Dear Friends I would request all the people planning to appear for the exam after 4th Oct to please post their experience on the forum so that the tensions regarding the exam changes can be dispelled. Thanx to all Regards Sanjeev
Sure Sanjeev, infact I am scheduld to appear on the 4th of Oct itself. I recd a mail from SUN yesterday regarding the changes on the SCJP. It seems the passing percentage is lowered to 61% and the time allocated is reduced to 90 minutes. I myself am a little worried about the new exam, but I guess it should be fine with the test objectives remaining the same. Anyways I'll keep u updated. All the best. Amit
Amit, I am to take exam on 16th October. However, I have not received any mail from SUN about the changes in exam rules!!! I did know that they were to change a format as per the declaration in their site. Will you please forward the SUN mail to me.. My E-mail address : firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks in advance...
All Java greenhorns and those appearing for the exam on or after 4th of October, I would like to convey a beautiful piece of advice given to me by fellow Javaranchers and Moderators Maha & Ajit. They said one thing and that has changed, an anxiety stricken me, as if like a magic, the words were, " RELAX AND WORK HARD". Yes thats what is needed now. No problem if the pattern is been changing, no problem if the time limit is reduced, the only area of concentration is to cover up the syllabus as prescribed by Sun and be goddamn sure of what we do, being sure to the ultimate core of the matter. And I guess the one with knowledge can conquer any thing. I was planning to give it on 12th october. I wish all those appearing for the exam, the best of the best! Lets all relax and just study!

I agree. I was just getting concered as I saw a post which directed me to Sun's site, which informed about changed rules & syllabus. I thought, Networking & SWING was out of scope of SCJP2, I just want to make sure about that. Any thoughts???
