Passed OCJP 1.6 - 98%

I've posted about this in the SCJP forum as well, but I thought I might as well post it here too.

I want to make it known that I am very grateful to this entire forum.

I did not have access to the internet for the past few days either, so I could not verify stuff or ask last minute doubts..

It was a nerve wrangling experience waiting for today, but as one Nitish Bangera said, the exam was much easier than the mock exams I had given earlier.

(In that vein, I recommend Devaka's ExamLab as the perfect simulator to toughen you up, and of course K&B's Masterexams)

I was very lucky in that I did not get a single drag-and-drop question, and all the questions made sense to me. I was given an erasable markerboard/sheet, I had no other choice in that regard.

The worst part, in my opinion, was clicking the Finish button even on believing that my answers were right!

Thank you everyone!

@Shalini : Here's what I think...

I believe it depends, to some extent, on the exam center!

Some exam centers recycle their questions more often than others.

I took the exam at NIIT Hauz-Khas, Delhi. My friend took it at Aptech Rajouri Garden.

Her questions were similar to mine but some of them were too much for her. Then again I don't know how much time she devoted to studying.

I was studying everyday - in the morning as a bare minimum.

However I think that if you do the mock exams and code a lot to answer your own questions/doubts, exam question difficulty shouldn't be an issue.

After 1.5 months of study, the questions were really simple for me.

Did you find time was sufficient to answer all questions comfortably ?

Like I said, if you're good enough, there will be enough time left.

I followed K&B's recommendation to solve the exam in passes; first pass, second pass and so on.

What surprised me is the number of questions I solved on the first pass itself.

After checking and rechecking my answers, I had an hour left...I decided to get over with it.

@Pritish Congrats once again on a great result.

@Shalini OCPJP is really not about going through the book but understanding the concepts. You need to perfect all the concepts and then give the mocks. The two mocks i prefer is K&B's mock and Devaka's Examlab. With say a minimum effort of 21 days including solving the mocks, you would be prepared for the OCPJP.
