Just passed SCJP today.
To those who is going to take the test here are some tips:
1) Study thread really well, I got a question on join() so you need to know that too. It is the first section of the test, and the questions are not easy.
2) IO, stick with the exam objective, know the effects on the file system due to File, FileOutputStream constructors, and I got questions on DataOutputStream constructor also.
3) The questions on other sections are fairly easy, if you understand all the answers in JQ+.
4) Spend sometime on hexadecimal representation of numbers, I had a theoritical understanding, but panicked when I got a 32 bit int in hex format, and has to do bitwise operation on it. It cost me at least 10 minutes to get it right.

Congratulation. Thanks for sharing the valuable information. Can you also tell how much emphasis is on AWT and events??? and what do you mean by JQ+ questions?

JQ+ is a mock exam software, it is $20 and well worth it. http://enthuware.com/jqplus/
AWT questions are not hard, it tests your memory, either you know them or you don't. I remember getting four on the test.
One on LayoutManager, one on resizing behavior, two on AWT event handling.
Hope this helps.
