Cleared OCPJP 6 with 96%

Hello everyone!! I passed OCPJP 6 last Monday!! I'm very happy and proud of my score, 96%. I found the exam pretty easy compared to the K&B's OCP Practice Exams or Ethuware's.

For those interested in knowing, these were my steps to get certificated:
  • I read two times K&B's SCJP book. This an excellent book, and a must-have for anyone willing to pass this exam.
  • I expanded my knowledge on difficult topics by reading some chapters of M&R's Programmer's Guide to Java SCJP Certification. I found this book quite boring compared to K&B's though.
  • I bought OCP Java 6 Practice Exams by K&B. Excellent tests, helps toughen you up! Great work again, Kathy and Bert.
  • I purchased a copy of Enthuware mock exams, and did all the 13 exams (my average score was 83%). Like OCP Java 6 Practice Exams book, these tests are really tough! This helped me to put into practice what I learned. I recommend Enthuware to anyone, they have a great costumer support, always willing to solve any doubt on their tests. My only complain is the fact that some questions were mainly focused on operator precedence (which is no longer an exam topic). By the way, I'm planning to continue using this software to keep me in shape for job interviews .

  • Finally, I would like to thank everybody in this amazing forum. I'm very grateful to you, because you solved every doubt I posed!
