Hi all,
I just took the SCJP 1.4 exam this morning and passed with 75% ! Boy am I happy !
Before the moderator moves this topic, here's what to look out for ...
a. Threads (about 5 qns)
b. Garbage Collection (about 3-4 qns)
(Surprisingly, not much on Inner Classes).
And here's what I used to prepare ...
a. SCJP 1.2 version of Bert & Kathy's book
b. Marcus Green mock exam's
c. Dan's mock exam
d. Extensive reading of Javaranch forum
(Note that I did not exclusively read about the new 1.4 topics. I used the JR Forum, Dan's and Marcus's exams to fill the gap.)
Peace, bennido

Good job bennido, how did you do in the mock exams? Which of them do you think was the most similar to the real exam?

Hi Andres,
Besides the test questions in the old version of B&K's book, I mainly took Dan's & Marcus's mock exams.
For Dan's exams, I consistently got about 60% on the comprehensive mock exams (Can't remember what I got for Marcus ones). So Bert's statement about about getting 10-15% better on the real exam than Dan's score is spot on !!
