Hello all,
I finally passed the SCJP yesterday with 88%. Thanks for answering my questions.

The only preparation that I had time to do was read and do the exercises from the K&B book. I had NOT practiced any mock exams(no time with an extremely busy full-time job) though I did a few of Dan's tests.

Pointers for exam takers
1. Please take ear-plugs, you never know what the noise level might be like
2. There are quite a few thread questions that involve code and inner classes.
3. The best way to understand concepts is to write code. Write small sample programs to clarify the concepts.

Thanks to everyone who has been responding to my questions and good luck to future test-takers. If you have any questions regarding the exam please let me know.
