Not a high score, but I'm still happy . I had some experience with Java but I didn't use it much. Now my job requires it, so I decided to take the SCJP 6.

I spent 1 month for preparation, about 2-3 hours per day to study. The K&B book is the main resource including some found on SCJP faq page which I used for preparation in the first 3 weeks (read the book about twice and the two-minute drills many times ). For the mock exams, I used Whizlab's and K&B's in the last week.

As I expected, my weaknesses are concurrency and generics. I scored poorly on these two sections with only 50% and 70% respectively. I think I need to improve these areas.

This forum also provided me a lot of useful information and helped me answer many questions I got during the preparation. Thanks everyone!

I wish I could retake the exam for free so I could get a higher score, but that's enough . Now I'm starting to study for SCWCD 5. I'm planning to prepare for it in two months' time. Hope I can get a better score
