I don't want to psych myself out here, but does anyone know what percentage of people actually pass the SCJP exam the first time?
Regards,
Drew

Sun doesn't publish/release those stats (or any stats actually). If you want to find out how ready you are you should try a couple of the mock exams listed here http://www.javaranch.com/maha/_Mock_Exams/_mock_exams.html
You can compare your scores to those listed here http://www.jdiscuss.com/Enthuse/jsp/ViewAllResults.jsp
and see how other people did that scored the same and what they got on the real test.

Although it's totally personal but it might be obvious that people only reveal their scores when they get 96%, 93%, 88% or something alike. But we usually do not see postings from people saying that they scored 61%, 55%, 62% or the like. But imagine the true reality!!! I leave it up to you! I have made a joke to my friends recently that when someone says that he/she scored 98%, means that he/she failed 3 times at least!
Well, rejoice and feel good even if you score 47% or 63% at the first time. SCJP is all about getting 61%, nothing more nothing less.
