I passed the SCJP 5 earlier today with 81%, being my second attempt at it. A lot of hard work went into this and I'm over the moon! Finally on to the next thing.

Thanks everyone,
Rudolf

Hi Anut,

The score for my first attempt was 53% and that was after studying the Sun tutorial, doing Marcus Green's exams which is probably the reason for not getting less, and whatever I could find online, e.g. the SCJP forum here, exercises, and various other mock exams, etc. The other book I had, SAM's teach yourself, is nice but not really geared for the exam.

The boost in % second time around came from Kathy and Bert's SCJP5 book, and more mock exams, but K&B especially, their exams and the downloadable LearnKey master exam.

Best,
Rudolf
