Hello All!

I have passed today SCJP with 83% I am so happy! I was so stressed!
I wanted to thank you all for all information I found on javaranch It helped me a lot when preparing to the exam!

Some of the questions on the exam took me by surprise. There were almost no question about the Collections or Generics. On the other hand there were many very detailed questions about File class :/ which was not my favourite one and about the Threads.
To prepare to the exam I used K & B book - I read it 3 times - every time I discovered something new
For the mocks I used Enthuware, I did all of them with average of 77%. I did also ExamLab, but only one mock because of lack of time (I scored 52%).

I was taking the exam in the Netherlands at Prometric Centrum in Diemon and it was perfect (kind staff, possibility to start earlier, not crowded at all, 3 pens and 30 white pages provided ).

Hope this information help!

There were many questions form the last chapter but they were very easy.

I had about 5 drag and drop questions, but they were not very difficult (except from one which was really strange - about File class) and no questions to fill some text.
