cleared SCJP6 with 91%

Dear friends,

I cleared SCP6 today with 91%. Most of the questions were tough and some were exceptionally tough. Almost all questions were tricky, so you have to read it again and again till you spot the trick.
Thanks to K& B book, Enthuware JQPlus, Devaka's exam lab and all ranchers here. I did all master exams, Exam lab, and all JQPlus mock exams. Some questions were in the same level of toughness as Examlab. Most of the questions were tougher than Master exam and more or less same toughness as Enthuware. Almost all questions (except one with coupling/cohesion ) were code based. Make sure you practice lot of code. I scored an average of 60 in Examlab, 75 (avg) for Master exams and 80(avg) for JQPlus.

I am sharing my experience with today's test!
1. I brought a bottle of mineral water with me but the guy at prometric told me that drinking water is not allowed while doing test . Either you can have it before test or you could have the rest after the test!
2. I was expecting plain paper and pencils, but I was provided with an erasable board and a marker. The marker would not even work some times. It was horrible
3. Somehow I managed to answer all Thread questions correctly. I got 7-8 questions on thread, synchronization, dead lock etc.
4. Inner classes with most weirdest combination appears every where. You need to know the in and out of inner classes.
5. One drag and drop was extremely tough with Files, directory etc.
6. None of the questions were same or nearly same from Master exam or any mock exams.
7. Lot of questions were from shadowing instance, final, static variables in sub class, sub interfaces, inner class extending outer class etc.
8. Nothing from Serialization
9. It took me 2:45 mins to answer the complete questions and got only few minutes to review the marked ones!
10. Don't skip the tough questions thinking you can revisit them later because some of the questions appear easy, but it may not be that easy once you start thinking deeply!

I have already started preparing for SCWCD. Planning to appear exam within couple of months!

anyways I am glad that this is finally over Time for a new signature!
Wish you all the best

Congratulations on a terrific score. Those are excellent 10 points you provided.

By mid-week you should receive 2 e-mails from Sun. One e-mail will give you your Sun Certification ID and have information on how to register for the Certification Database. If you do not get that e-mail, send a message to suncert_ww@oracle.com to ask about it.

Two to three weeks (or longer if you are not in the U.S.) after you register into the Certificate Database, you will receive in the postal mail a welcome kit containing your SCJP certificate and a small plastic wallet-size ID card that indicates your SCJP status. Your score is not printed on them. If you do not get that package then send a message to suncert_ww@oracle.com to ask about it.

I'm a little worried because I'm scoring only 50% in Examlab I hope I'll be more confident when I take my exam..

Best regards.

Dont worry! It is a good score in Exam Lab
I only got 52% in my last Exam lab exam even though I scored 68 in the second and 60+ (can't recollect) in the first
Score is NOT what is important, you need to figure out why you missed the questions!
Always use exam lab as a learning tool. I am sure you will suceed!

Hi Larry, I got the 2 emails from Sun couple of hours back with a Sun ID and after verifiying the address and personal stuff I was able to login to certification database with that login ID.

Thanks again,

Rajeev, Thank you for telling me the good news. You will see that in the Certification Database you can now send your SCJP credentials to anybody you want, before you receive the printed certificate from Sun. Also, in the Certification Database, I suggest you try the link for downloading the Sun SCJP logo.
Congratulations again.

Rajeev,

I am planning to appear for SCJP 6.0 soon but haven't taken the date yet. I read the K&B study guide many times. Please tell me how to improve confidence in programming. What sort of exercise should I work on?

Thanks

Akila, welcome to the ranch
Have you tried the Master exams which comes along with the K&B book? If so, how much are you scoring?
After trying the Master exams, try Devaka's Exam lab. It do have 5 mock exams. The questions are tough though, but use it as a learning tool. The link is in my signature.
If you need to learn more, please try Enthuware JQPlus or Whizlabs mock exams. I tried Enthuware and it is really great with 13 mock exams.

Wish you all the best

I practiced most of code from K&B book and Master exams (from K&B cd) whenever I was in doubt. Apart from that spent some time on Exam Lab and Enthuware mock exams.

Thanks Rufat! I think there are different versions of the exam, some easy, some tough, some medium! We don't know for sure what is in the store! Don't worry too much about that, be well prepared, do Exam Lab and then go ahead and do it!

Wish you all the best !

Congratulations Rajeev and thanks for the post. I am having exam too in next few days. I have prepared from K&B Book and finished K&B mock tests(60%-65%). I am planning to try ExamLab and free Enthuware Tests. Could you please suggest me any other test or techniques.

Thanks Sandhya. I think 65% is a good score in Master exams. Try the "Exam Lab" and it do have 5 exams. Please use it as a learning tool. Review the questions, answers and explanations given and you are good to go
