OCJP Passed!

Today i took my ocjp 6 exam and passed with a 88% score.
I started to learn java only this year so that was a great score for me, i didint knew what polimorfism, inheritance never saw exceptions before but during this past 5 months i learned alot!
The exam was kind of hard because there was alot of questions about directories and classpath wich was the one i didint gave much attention, some questions about Threads, 5 i think, enum and navigableset and a some about OO principles, but all in all it was a great experience and i recommend everyone thats starting to learn Java to take this exam, its a nice way to give yourself an objective so you dont lose yourself trying to learn everything in java at once

i spend 5 months studying wich the first 4 was only reading k&b book, i think i read it 3 times, everytime i finished one of the objectives of the book i did alot of small codes to practice and i wrote almost 100 pages of my personal notes.
For the last month i only did mock exams:
-I bought Epractize with i didnt liked, it has alot of English/typos the mocks are way too easy(i think my lowest score was 95%) and the explanation wanst very good.
-I used Examlab wich is alot harder than the actual exam, and had some outdated questions about serialization and drag - drop wich arent on the exam anymore, but more information is always nice, last week i saw the new web version and did all of them, my scores was around 50-60%
-Ethunware, first i would like to thank Paul Anilprem that saw my post about how dissapointed i was with Epractize and gave me a free copy to test Ethunware, it was the main mock i used, the questions arent too hard like Examlam neither too easy like Epractize, but the best thing about this mock its the button that almost all questions have that links to a forum where people discuss the answer its very good to visit ALL of them and read the discussion to see how people solve the problems, the only bad part its that not all of the questions have a forum topic.

I would also like to thank everyone in javaranch for the help and support.
See you on my next certification

Congratulations, Mauro! Glad to know that you liked our product

The reason we gave you a free copy was because we didn't like people thinking products from India are bad. Of course, you didn't say that in the post and probably didn't mean that either. A product isn't necessarily bad just because it is cheap or is from any particular country. BTW, we offered a free license to the other poster as well but they didn't want it after learning that our product was also from India.

Regarding forum topics for questions: those topics are created automatically when a user has doubts about the explanation or needs more information about that question. Some questions are straight forward or the provided explanations are enough, so nobody asked anything about them, and so there are no topics for them. But you can always create a new topic if you need further help on any particular question.

HTH,
Paul.
