Hi everyone,.......
I took the SCJP exam, and passed with a 64%.Though I just barely made it, I can't wait to see my boss's face tomorrow, when I hand her a copy of my results. She never did believe I would pass, especially when my field of study is Business Administration, and Java is my first programming language!!
I wish to thank all those who have participated directly or indirectly in helping me pass the exam. Thomas Paul, you have been a great help, you really did clear some mis-conceptions I had on the fundermentals of Java Programming.

Tips on passing the exam
*************
1) Buy a good programming book, I recommend the Java 2 Exam Cram, Second Edition by Bill Brogden
^^^ about 3-4 questions from his book appeared on the exam^^^
2) Do lots of mock exams and practise code.
^^^playing around with java codes helps, majority of the
questions asked aren't that complex, it only tests your
basic knowledge on Java. JQPLUS will definitely help.
I think, about 7-8 questions were from JQPLUS^^^
3) Make sure you visit Javaranch with any questions you may have or at least, view other people questions and try answering them by yourself.
^^^Javaranch helps re-assure your know-how in java or will
clear mis-conceptions on the principles of java^^^
