I am a SCJP now and absolutely delighted with the result.
Many thanks to Javaranch !
I prepared for two months full time. I mainly used RHE,Exam Cram, Java API. I did all the mocks on Maha's site. Thanks Maha.
Difficulty level of the exam was intermediate.
AWT - 4
IO - 6
UTIL - 5
LANG - 2
Also, lots of questions on language fundamentals, Strings, StringBuffer. A few questions on the default value for variables and References. Most questions had 8 lines of code. I got a few questions with upto 20 lines of code. Threads was tough, I got only 71% in Threads. The Thread discussions in Javaranch and Maha's site helped me. Atleast 15 questions had confusing options.
Goodluck to future aspirants .
Thanks for your wishes. The duration of the exam is 90 min. Well, I finished the exam in 50 min. I had ample time to review all the questions.

congrats vidhya.
I came to know from the site that the sun has reduced the time for the examination to 90 minutes. Is it right? If so then did you get any short of time? I will be appearing in the last week of this month.
congrats again.
