Hi,
today I've passed SCJP6 with score...unknown... Anyway I am happy I passed it (I hope I will be able to see my score on the official certification I will receive at home).

Unfortunately the test center and the prometric software had problem printing my score report,
so the test center administrator was only able to show me, through the test software administration,
that I have passed the exam...

IT WAS A NIGHTMARE, because also their test server was randomly rebooting...
I was so scared that my exam could have lost...Fortunately, after ones of the most stressing 50minutes of my
life (I am not counting university studies period ;) ) we finally managed to start that damn server again,
and the test center administrator uploaded my exam to prometric, showing me that I passed it

I have to say that I calmed down only hours later, when I was able to see, logging inside the prometric
website, that I've passed the exam: the exam status is now "passed".

Sorry for this rash, but I have to YELL OUT my frustration ;)

Anyway, here is my "road to success" ^_^

I've gone through the K&B book 1 time, and, when reaching the end of each chapter, I did the 2 min drills
and the self-test.

At the end of K&B book I bought Enthuware test suite.
I did all enthuware tests (apart from the final test, because I had no time), and, 2 week before
the exam date, I did also all the ExamLab mocks (apart from the "diagnostic test").

At the end of each mock test, I have always reviewed all questions, writing a document containing
the concepts I missed. When I've found something unclear, I've gone through internet (google, articles, and
of course this forum), and I did a lot of little tests by myself.

My Enthuware scores ranged from a minimum of 61% to a maximum of 82%.

Have to say that, in my opinion, enthuware is a MUST to get: if you have to study during work (as I did),
enthuware ability to pause/resume an exam, and the possibility to review questions also after doing
exams, is really helpfull. Its a great learning tool.

Of course I've never passed any of ExamLab exams. My examlab scores are:
Test1: 50%
Test2: 55%
Test3: 60%
Test4: 63%.

The real exam was easier than the mocks, but in fact is fundamental to practice mocks because there were
tricky questions inside the real exam.
The trickiest question for me was a one that needed me to remember that TreeSet.subSet(E, bool, E, bool) returns a
NavigableSet (and not a SortedSet, like the oter subSet* methods) and also that it fails at runtime if you try
to add something to a subset that is outside the range of the subset.

This just to give you this feeling: the real exam is easier if compared to the mocks, but you need to practice on
harder mocks to be able to spot tricks like that one inside real exam questions.

Thanks all ranchers for the support, and Devaka for doing such a great learning tool.

Ah, I have a question:
does the score report contains some needed information to register with Sun Certification database or something else ?

Or I will get all the needed information by email ?

Thanks.

congrats Emmanuel finally you can relax!!!
Please see the post from Larry Chung, you should be getting 2 mails from Sun within couple of days!

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.

Thanks all mates.

I called Prometric and they told me they will send my score report via post to my home address.

As soon as I get the report I will inform you all ;)

Thanks.
