I took the exam during the memorial weekend, scored 88%.(much lower than Ajith's, so I'd better not put it in the subject. by the way, congratulations, Ajith) It still made me happy, at least for the long weekend. First of all, I want to say, thank you, thank you, all of you. I couldn't have done it without your help. I feel lucky to find this place for preparing the exam.
Based on few programming experience, I spent three months studying java. Books I used, includ RHE, Exam Cram, and Sun's toturial. For all the avaliable mock exams, I have done them twice, improved a lot at the second time, of course. I went through all the discussion threads here, took me almost one week.
But it is definitely worth it. During the real exam, I finished the test in one hour. I have to say, it is not very hard, at least, I didn't get the impression that it was as hard as khaild's. Otherwise I couldn't have scored this high. Pretty straightforward. Focus on the basic theories, don't have to stuck with those tricky, worded questions of mock exams for too long. I got a fill-in-blank question too, invloving whether adding smeicolon or not--I choosed adding. Coz, I thought that would make the code compele. Well, I don't know if the correct answer, if Ajith is sure about that's why he didn't ace the exam, then I suggest those who are going for the test should be careful about this. My tips may be helpful for those newcomers of java. It sure needs you studying hard, but you will feel good in paying-off day. Never give up.
Good luck. ANd thank you again! Thank you very much, javaranch.

Hey Indy,
Congratulations!. If someone says 88% is not a great score, just let me know. I will take them for a ride.
It's not about the score, it's not even about passing. If you ask me, it's all about learning. How much you have learnt during this effort matters more than how much close you are from being perfect!.
Thanks for the tips. I am sure it will help a lot of people. Good luck and best wishes.

Congrats Indy. Good job.
All the best for your future endavours.
Btw, as Ajith says, if someone says 88 % is
not a good score, first send them to Ajith
and then to me. They better know how hard the
preparation is for SCJP, IMHO. I bet it needs
a lot of mental strength and determination.
Regds.
