Hi All,
Today I passed SCJP with 86%. Thanks to all of you.Java Ranch has been really helpful in preparing for the exam.
The exam was really very easy.It was almost similar to Marcus exams. I finished the exam in 1 hr 15 mts.45 mints I spent for reviewing. There was one question relating to Stack not actually a Collection qn.(Related with Overloading or something(sure it was wrong for me).
For Certification I bought the following books.
Certification guide by Barry Boone and William Stanek(Don't buy this one)
Certification guide by Jamie Jaworski.
Believe it or not I didn't read the book commonly named "THE BIBLE" for Certification - Roberts & Hellers guide.
For the past one month I was reading postings in this forum.
Full credit of my success goes to Java Ranch.
Thanks to all of you.

Congratulations. You are probably one of the very few that have passed without using the R&H Book. I am also using Jaworski's book, but I see nobody mentions it as any good. But when I combine with the immense knowledge I am getting from this forum, I hope I will be able to pass, without having to buy another book.
Once again
Congrats

Thanks to all of you.
Regrading IO in real exam they will ask only direct questions I think.(say something related with constructor types or which type streams a particular stream supports as arguments.)
In thread I think you have to study the conditions at which thread stops ,significance of various methods(run,yield etc)
and synchronization concepts.
Real exam is very easy. Some qns were so easy that I have to confirm it by reading it again.
All the best
Mani
