Passed OCPJP (81%)

Boy, am I happy: I passed the exam yesterday with 81%!

It took me about 3 months of pretty intense study, and I must say I've had quite enough of Java at the moment.

I've been using K&B's book A LOT, and I wholeheartly recommend it to anyone being serious on getting certified. Also, the new practice exam book by the same authors is a must-have as well! It really helped getting toughened up for the exam itself. The exam itself was (for me at least) a lot easier than the practice exams in that particular book.

A final note: I got 2 questions concerning wait, notify and notifyAll, which shouldn't have been on the exam, as they were removed from the objectives quite some time ago. How this can happen is beyond me. I've sent a complaint to Oracle, for future exam takers' sake. Btw: no serialization questions.

Congratulation

Do you use ExamLab, if so, could you tell us how much you score before went to the exam. Thanks

No, I haven't used ExamLab. As for the mock exams, I've only used K&B's new exam practice book mentioned above, and the mock exams that came with the study guide (2 + 1 bonus).

The exams in the exam practice book are really tough, my scores on the 4 exams were 30, 30, 29 and 37 correct out of 60. On the exam itself I scored 49/60.
