Finally, the ordeal is over! Today I passed the SCJP test with 84%.
Actually speaking I am kind of disappointed with the result. I solved all the standard tests from JQ+ and always got marks in 85-93 range with last three tests above 90. people say JQ+ is tougher than real exam, I would say is JQ+ is exactly like real exxam and I highly recommend it to everybody.
I prepared for this exam exactly for 2 and half months. used Khalid Mugal mainly. Its a very good book. but one round of it wasn't sufficient since I got 71 in Marcus Greene exam#1. So made second round of it along with Exam Prep. JQ+ is something that reallly helped me for my overall preapration. I learned a lot from those mock tests. In fact some of today's questions were almost exactly like JQ+ questions. So that really helps you.
My exam wasn't loaded with threads and IOs like others. Had around 6-7 from each of those categories. but at least 2 out of 7 from thread and io were tricky. Even one awt question was kind of tricky. I missed total 9 questions out of 59. 5 of them I knew I was going to miss but the remaining 4 really shocked me.
I got 100% in fundamentals, lang, util, gc and declaration and access control. Funny thing is I had almost 4-5 questions about overriding about just 1 point that overriding method can not have stricter access modifier. The most pathetic score I got is in Flow control and I have no idea where I went wrong and I was never weak in that. God know what happened. May be there was some trick that I missed otherwise the questions looked pretty simple.( yeah and I went wrong ) Pay attention to those post and prefix operators. only 1 question from GC. regarding IO, pay attention to the constructors, that is what kind of arguments each class constructor can take etc.
yeah and one more thing, I had one very tricky question about thread. Unfortunately I can not discuss the question but I really don't what was the answer.
Thats all I have.
I wish all the best to the future testers! and will definitely try to provide any information they need.
Thanks
