Hey Guys,

I passed OCPJWCD today with 86% marks. I know it's not a great grade (60/69), but I am happy for passing the exam with just a month's preparation (5 hrs max per day).

I used 2 books to study and few mock tests to test myself:

Books

1. HFSJ - Awesome book, awesome narration. Easy to read, easy to learn!
2. Lyons book - Another awesome book. Proper Text book type. I read this after HFSJ, so it really helped.

Mock Tests

1. All 7 tests present at JavaBeat.
2. Lyons mock test at garnerpress.com
3. HFSJ mock test
4. All tests at Examulator (Thanks Marcus!)

All in all, the exam was good, mostly Radiobutton/Checkbox types, few drag-n-drops.

Haven't decided on next one, mostly the Webservices certification. That's what I am thinking of.
