Cleared SCJP with 81%

I cleared SCJP with 81%- Not a really good score to flaunt but a satisfying PASS Had i been more active on the SCJP Forum i could hav got a better score. Started preparing seriously in the last 3 weeks. But a prior programming experience in Java helped me a lot. The exam isn't tough, its tricky.

Few suggestions to the SCJP aspirants-
>> Purchase Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates SCJP Guide- This is bang on target book
>> Optionally one can refer- Khalid Mughal SCJP Guide- Its a bit bulky than K&B. And the explanation is not simple.
>> Head First Java will help in solving the Drag and Drop - Lucky to hav referred that long back
>> Code and Code- Things (especially the API stuff) will retain for a longer time if you code a lot.
>> Use ExamLab- The best Mock exam software- Its FREE- Tons of thanks to Devaka Cooray for the superb tool- The interface is damn similar to the real exam engine and also the report obtained at the end of each exam is on par wit the actual report. So solve 5 exams from there and review each and every question- see why you answered it correctly and why you answered it wrong. Though the level of questions in this is higher- i got some 59% on an average in these. But you can learn a lot from this tool.
>> Use the SCJP Forum here to post u'r queries- You hav lots of people waiting to answer
>> Be through with all the topics cause you dont know which objective is being tested in the exam.

Thanks a lot for the help JavaRanch has provided- be it in the form of a Forum and the FAQs

With a bit more effort one can score really high. And what i feel about SCJP is that you get to know a lot of Java concepts when you are preparing for it

I wasnt well prepared when I took the exam. I think I was weak in Generics and few topics related to deployment. And a score of 90+ doesn't indicate one is really good in Java.

Frankly I havent used my SCJP score anywhere so far. Its just how much and how well you can code in Java that matters.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
