Passed scjp today with 93%

Hi all, I was very pleased to have passed scjp today with 93%.

I have studied on and off for the last months, mainly during my train ride to the job,
and the last two weeks every day one chapter of Bert's and Kathy's book.

I found it quite difficult to remember all these tiny details,
for example I chose readLn instead of readLine for the bufferedreader on the exam.
I think I mainly made mistakes in those departments,
I don't really mind about that.

I did two mock exams, the one on the cd from the book and the bonus exam,
they were more difficult than the real test,
which turned out to be a good preparation,
it kept me on my toe's when I did the mock's
since I made some errors which I didn't make at the real exam,
like variables out of scope, or calling a instance member from a static function,
easy to read over when you are not prepared.

Also my experience with the drag and drop questions were good,
I found those questions easy to make.

Will be doing scjd next....

Good luck all, or congrats when you made it as well...

greetings Bert
