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 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.
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?
good luck to all who are going to take this exam.
thank you all again.

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
