I got 63%.really bad score. should I retake the exam.
thought I am learning java for quite a while but started serious preparation 12 days back.Read the whole book once.
exam lab score 37%.inquisition 52%.never passed a mock, but as my voucher was expiring on aug 17 I had to appear for the exam on 16th aug .I really got kicked in the generics I wish I had 3-4 more days.Didnt passed the exam lab mock but reviewing my mistake really broadened my vision and improved my approach towards questions.
I am following java ranch from long back. thanks to every one.

Your experience really enlightened me. Thanks for that.
I also studied the K&B one time, but can not pass in the mock exams.
Most people advice two or three readings of the book and a very good score in mock exams before taking the real test.

My advice is to not mention the score (you can mention the certification) on the resume. Tell your score only if you have been asked.
Get a good a score in SCWCD after good preparation.
SCJP is basic exam and SCWCD is what you normally use in web application projects, hence a good score in SCWCD will show you in good light.
