Big joy in my heart today. After 11 month of preparation, many breaks due to work, postponing, etc finally I passed SCJP6 today with 85%
Many thanks to all the ranchers who replied to questions, Bert & Kathy for their wonderful book, and Devaka Cooray for the ExamLab (which stylewise is the closest-to-real-exam simulator I ever saw).
Preparation: K&B book+tests - 3 times overall; Mughal & Rasmussen book - selected reading; mocks; ExamLab 6. The exam was overall easier then the ExamLab, here are my ExamLab results so you can judge the difference in difficulty:
Diag - 70% pass
Exam1 - 48% fail
Exam2 - 66% pass
Exam3 - 65% pass
Final exam - 56% fail
Today's real exam - 85% pass
BUT, still on the real exam there were tricky questions I had to guess the answer to.
