Thanks to everyone at javaranch. Today i cleared my SCJP2 exam.
I scored 78% which is very disappointing. I hoped to fare much better...oh well.
I had one months preparation, and i work in C++.
The questions were not too hard, but i had about 8 questions on i/o.4 on garbage collection. one on Gridbaglayout.

good luck to all those preparing for the exams.
And thanks once again for the moderators, this is a great site.

Congrats Prashant!
Did you get so many qstns on IO? It is considerable % isn't? I think Sun has added more IO qstns to their qstns database after they officially included the IO in SCJP2 Exam objectives. This is just my feeling. Thank you for the feedback.

Hi Ponnala,
can u tell me the level of difficulty of the question on IO ( iam a bit weak in it)?
should one be well versed with the IO package itself or what were the questions based on.
thanks in advance,
rag

I would say the difficulty level of i/o was medium.
You should be aware of any instances of abstract classes in the answer choices, I would suggest writing atleast one sample program for each of the reader/writers so that you would have an idea of whats going on.
I would also suggest you to spend equal time analyzing your mock exam results as the exam itself.And take as many of them as you can.
goodluck

Prashant -
Congrats!
I assume you took the 1.2 exam?
I just want to clarify for everyone that the current exam is 1.4, and it doesn't test you on I/O or AWT topics
