Happy ending at first STOP

Yesterday I cleared SCJP2 exam with 74%. I am not satisfied with score, but really very happy. A lot of thanks goes to Maha, Maracus and to many guys of this forum.
I was preparing since last week of Aug. I was about going for exam about 3 weeks ago. But I waited three more weeks. Did more mocks,then I got Exam cram for fews days from a friend. After my office, I could devote only 2-3 hrs on an average.
I already had some knowledge of C++/OOP.
I started studying about java since May 00. I had started learning about servlet/JDBC etc. Then I thought to go for Certification, but what I found that Objectives for Certification is very basic.
But sometimes "Basic" is more typical to understand.
Really I was in haste to appear for exam(actually I got bored reading/doing same "basic" things), so that I can continue for advance study - Javabeans/JDBC/Srervlets.
After knowing about my certification, my boss today asked to see how can I implement my java knowledge in a new upcoming project.
Really, I am thrilled.
Questions were really easy but tricky. Probably I would have done some "basic" mistakes or might have missed tricks. You need to do a lot of mocks and code practice.
I wasn't good in thread.
It seems that I writing too much.
Thanks again
