I cleared the SCJP yesterday with a score of 77%.I am pretty much happy with it, cause I didn't know the A..B..C of Object Oriented Programming till about 2 months back.
I studied hard for the past couple of months and decided to go for it yesterday.So now I really feel satisfied.
Now for the meaty part:
1)Exam is tough - but only for certain topics like Threads:
I got 12 Questions on Threads ranging from true /false to 20 lines of code testing wait/notify/synchronized and non synchronized threads.I was referring to Khalid's book which is not at all sufficient for Threads.Get a Thread specific Book and get all your concepts cleared and write loads of code.
2)There were some really tricky questions in Flow control and exception Handling.Know all your loops really well.
Rest of the exam was easy.
I had about 20 minutes to review my answers.
Thanks to all the javaranch people and best of luck to all the future aspirants.I'm off to the Developer Certfication group now.
