This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
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 THREADS - 6 OVERRIDING - 5-6 OVERLOADING - 5-6 FLOW CONTROL - 3 OBJECT CASTING,CONVERSION - 4 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.
