Hi Robert and Cameron,

PASSED SCJA with score *80%*

My preparation:
- Mc Graw Hill SCJA
- Mc Kenzie SCJA (2 books)
- Enthuware SCJA

- Mc Graw-Hill (Robert and Edward) Especially chapter: 10 and 12 (Ch10_Java_Platforms_and_Integration_Technologies + Ch12_Server-side_Technologies)
First I scored very low, now very high. Page 325 shows it all! At the exam I scored 100%) Thanks Robert

- Program technically I have learned lots of McKenzie with the exam questions. Really perfect. Thanks Cameron.

So both books have there weak and strong points. I used the strong points of each book.

At last I have bought Enthuware.
These questions were a lot harder at first, but because of my persistance I finally scored above the 90%.
Then I really believed that I was ready. I planned the exam a week later and passed.

The next step will be SCJP.

Thanks for your support,

Kind regards,

Rene van der Ven

Congratulations! I'm so glad my books helped you out, and I'm sure Robert and Anil (Enthuware) feel exactly the same way.

You really did have a killer arsenal of resources there for tackling the exam. Your success is no surprise.
