Hi guys,

Appearing for the scjp 6.0 on 6th of march 2010. I have already covered the book K&B and right now i'm doing the revision.
while in revision i'm doing good in the exercises than before.

from tomorrow i will be starting dealing with the mock exams and the exams that has come with my K&B book to face the real questions till 5th of march and than another skimming of K&B and than the exam.

1. just wanted to know that how many questions will be there (i guess 61)?
2. how many questions do i have to solve to pass, what's passing %?
3. which chapters are more difficult so that i focus more?
4. just give me some hints on how to deal with questions.

Number of questions: 60
Pass score: 58.33 % (35 of 60)
Time limit: 180 minutes

Generally, Strings,Threading, Generics & Collections require more attention. But most of the people say that they score very low in Flow Control.
Moral is study each & every topic in detail. You cannot guess Exam Creator's mind.

All the best.
I agree. Here's the link:
