Hello everybody, today I passed SCJP with 66% score in first attempt. I am a non IT profetional. I am a constant visitor of Javaranch Forum and I learned lots of basic from this forum. Special thanks to all moderators for the quality of discussion.(Maha anna !) I am happy that I passed exam but nervous because I scored less percentage. but I know the reason and it is new time limit(90 minutes), big codes and multiple choice.As I saw at watch after finishing 30 ques 60 minutes were over.so I was left with only 30 minutes for remaining 29 ques and must have mistake while giving ans for this ques. I am able finish 57 ques---so be aware of time limit and work very hard. anyway I basically prepared from RHE, bill bro. I gave 10-12 mock exams. i practised lots of code. Exam questions were good and evenly distributed according to the objective. I found 3 questions same as in some mock exam. I did not get socket, mediatracker and gridbaglayout questions. The distribution of questions was: 6 on i/o 3-4 operator and assignment. 1 garbage coll. 4-5 util package. 3-4 awt package. 10-11 overloading/overrinding. 2-3 thread. 5 on flow control exeception. can anybody tell me what should I do next? xml. oracle. scjd. good luck to all who are going to take this exam. thank you all again. Ashok.
hello Ashok I would personally feel that you continue your workin in java rather than testing some other waters. Instead of becoming a jack of all and master of None you can concentrate on Java only Best Wishes Venu
