Hi all,

I passed the SCJP 5.0 last month with a score of 79%.

prepared for 2 weeks.But looking at my comparetively average score ,i would suggest other aspirants to study for at least 4 weeks

I used "K & B" book.I must say that first time ever i enjoyed reading a book.It's really an amazing book.The funny quotes written in paranthesis would make me laugh.Every now and then my dad would see that and ask "Do you still hide comics inside a study book to pretend studying like you used to do in your school days"

It makes you realise that even studying be fun !!

All those who are thinking of the exam...just go for this book !!

Hey Bert, Bio Diesel rocks...so do you and Kathy !!

It's great to hear that you enjoyed the book Amit!

And don't worry, 79% is a really fine score on the SCJP - it's a tough exam, and the results here at JavaRanch are very misleading

Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
