Hi all, This is very sad that,sun is not updating the question set for scjp. As i have seen that their are certain pdf available on the internet, that contains certain list of questions,in the real exams almost 50% or more question are same. I too have experienced this in real exam,and some of my friends who have given exam recently faces the same. This is kind request to peoples responsible for Sun exam to update the question set for Exam. Else people will be getting 90% or more without real knowledge.
Unfortunately, there are bad people who illegally copy the questions from the exam and who want to cheat their way into the SCJP - this is not good for people who work hard to earn their SCJP, because it devaluates the exam.
On the other hand, if people who have cheated get a job interview, the interviewer will quickly discover that they don't know anything about Java.
On JavaRanch, we do not want to help people to cheat, and that's one of the reasons why it is required to quote your sources if you post a question copied from a book, mock exam or other source. We have a list of websites that contains illegal material, and if someone posts a question coming from such a website, it is deleted by the moderators. (The list is only accessible to the moderators).
The 72 questions that you get on your SCJP exam are selected from a large pool of questions. So not everybody gets the exact 72 same questions.
