Test date march 1st 2010,Test: 310-365,
my success story goes like this..... i prepared Head first java thoroughly. then i went for K&B Study Guide and while preparing this two books i would have at least done 1000+ small learn the compiler's behavior. in my case it took only one month to prepare for SCJP 6.0 with out much prior coding experience. Thanks be to God(JESUS).
the key lies in doing programs..just programs alone will really help one to understand....the compiler and run time error.
i thought the new exams 310-365, will have 72 questions and and pass score was 65%.the K&B book says so. but in actuality the exam which I took had only 60 questions and was timed for 3 hours and the pass % is 58. well what ever i am SCJP..
code a lot of small programs... to crack the exam....don't use IDEs...
thanks to all those who helped me....

my next thing would be SCWCD. i am going to write it next month....

Congrats Vamshi,

The idea of writing TONS of small programs seems like good advice for everyone!
