Last Friday on 26th June, I have successfully completed SCJP 6.0 with 86%, I regularly used to saw the posts at Javaranch which helped me to make this success. I have been preparing for the 3 months for this exam, daily around 1/2 hour to 1 hour. I practiced lot of mock questions, If I not answered any question properly, I used to read the related complete chapter of Kathy Sierra book. That helped to gain complete knowledge in the areas where I was weak, I followed this apporach, as I did not used to get much time for the preparation daily. Though you get most of the similar questions from [ ILLEGALLY COPIED REAL EXAM QUESTIONS ], I suggest everyone to read the Kathy Sierra book completely and practice the mock questions to sync with the exam model. Before going for the exam, the previous day, I read all the 'TWO-MINUTE DRILL' sections of all chapters of the book, 'SCJP Sun® Certified
Programmer for Java™ 6 Study Guide Exam (310-065)' from Kathy Sierra.
Thanks one and all for your encouragement and support here at Java Ranch.
