A little more modest compared to some of the Ranchers scores here, but another tick in the box for me and for the Ranch!

Thanks Sanjana, and good luck for your exam. A little tip if you are nervous during the exam, is to stop for a minute and take a deep breath, close your eyes nd focus, and everything will be fine, especially if you are well prepared. I have blogged on my exam experience today. you can see it here http://javacabecedarian.blogspot.com. Hope it helps.

Hi,

Congrats on passing the exam!

I am taking my SCJA exam in two weeks. I just have a few general questions and I would appreciate any guidance.

1) In the SCJA exam, will I be able to skip any question and come back to it later (there seems no point in wasting time if a question seems to be tough - I would prefer to answer the easy ones first and come back to the tough ones later)?

2) How many questions do we need to get right, in order to pass the exam? Is it 35 or 39 OR something else?

3) Are the questions from a particular objective clubbed together, OR are the questions laid out in random?

4) Do we get enough scratch paper and other materials for doing any scratch work?

5) Do we get instant feedback about the results, after the exam?

Thanks!

Hi sanjana,

Thanks for your feedback. Good to know that one can skip and come back to the previous questions. It is also useful to know that questions from various sections are laid out in random order (unlike practice tests, which seem to club them together).

So if I understand your messages on this topic correctly, you took your SCJA exam recently? So how did it go? Hope you passed it with flying colors.

What training materials did you use to prepare for the exam? Can you please share your experiences of taking the exam? Any list of DOs and DON'Ts will be really helpful.

Thanks much!

Hi Larry Olson,

yes recently i took SCJA exam but i got 34 marks i was failed , actually i was in hurry to get cerificate, i will tell you some materials first you start with head first java read it 2 times then practice small programs, then read Cameron McKenzie's study guide & questions guide atleast 3 times you will definitely enjoy these 2 books very easy to read and understand, i think these 3 books are enough to get perfect 100% score, if you need any help i am here all the best for your preparation.

Hi sanjana,

Sorry to hear that. So if I understand you correctly, did you miss the pass by just 1 question (you got 34 correct instead of 35)? That is too bad. But learn from this experience and move on to become better prepared. You will crack it soon!

Good luck!
