Hello World. I passed SCJP today with 89%. When studying for the exam, I mainly used Roberts & Heller's Study Guide and Brogden's Exam Cram. I found those quite insufficient for the real exam, though. It is importable to do as much mock exams as you have time to; from those I learned a lot of little things that weren't covered in the books. The difficulty of the real test was about the same level as most of the mock exams I did; however, one surprise was that there was a LOT more questions on I&O in the real test than in most mock exams. Be sure to review I&O things before taking the exam!

Thanks, Girish! My next project will be to learn UML for the IBM test 486. Do you (or anyone else) know any good resources for that?
