Passed SCJP 6 90%

2 Months study finaly over.
K+B book was great but ExamLab was what got me that result.

That software is amazing better than all the other mock exams I had taken(Whizlabs, Learnkey, various sites).
Questions are extremely tough(exam was trivial compared).

The rule about adding 30% to your average ExamLab scores is correct.

I took each test twice first time round was averaging about 50%(any more than twice and I start to remember the correct answers).
After reviewing my wrong answers and writing down what the compiler was doing to get at the correct answers it really bolstered my study.
A month later retaking those same mocks was getting 60-65%. By the end of all the mock exams I had pages of compiler rules which I simply memorized.

Nothing about serialization on the exam which I found disappointing as I really liked those classes(First time I had used serialization in any programming language).
Hated the cohesion, encapsulation and coupling questions. Those were way too flaky(ambiguous).

Hi Neil,

Congratulations on your score. You had mentioned that you listed all the compiler rules and memorized, if you don't mind can you please share it with me? Because it will be helpful for me.

Thanks

Akila, the compiler rules I wrote down across various pieces of loose paper. Would be hard for me to collate them all(some are lost now), sorry.
