I just passed passed SCJP 6 with 88%

Here was my breakdown:

Declarations, initialization and scoping - 83 %
Flow control - 100 %
API Contents - 90 %
Concurrency - 87 %
OO Concepts - 90 %
Collections / Generics - 90 %
Fundamentals - 81 %

I guess the biggest suprise for me was how easy it was compared to all of the mock tests I have been doing. I have read lots of commentary in the Saloon forums that say that you should hit about the same % in your real exam that you are getting in the mock exams. I found the mock exams much harder and trickier than the real thing.

(By mock exams I mean
the K+B Master exams,
the exams in their book,
the Examlab software,
Examulator, Inquisition,
and the exams @

SCJA 96%
SCJP 6 88%

Thanks Sachin!

I noticed that you have SCJP and are preparing for SCWCD and SCBCD.

I think it makes sense to skip SCJD (I assume you are), since it's more expensive and SCWCD and SCBCD would seem to cover much more new territory than doing the SCJD project.

I think I will focus on SCWCD you have any good resources that you could pass along (besides the Saloon Web Component Certification (SCWCD) forum, of course.

Thanks, Pat
