Yayy, I cleared it finally..!

A big thanks to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates, and the ExamLab simulator! ExamLab really helped me to brush up my skills, and more accurately reflected the difficulty of the real exam. Kathy and Bert's book with mock exams was so difficult, I barely scored 55 - 70% on all the 4 exams, that too without having the time to attempt 10 - 15 questions each time! But, that really helped. Their book grills you and forces you to pay attention to all the little little details, the trick questions and really prepares you for the real exam. Seriously, without their book I could not have scored so well..! Refer to both their books, the one with mock exams and the original exam focused study book.

Thank you so much Kathy and Bert, thats a wonderful book - and a challenge to all who want to attempt the OCPJP exam.

And a big thank you to Deevaka for Exam Lab, which gave the real taste of the exam - I only attempted 2 of the 4 practice exams, but they really helped. Specially, the little tips he offers on the explanations while you are reviewing the incorrect answers.

Joel Salatin has signs on his property that say "Trespassers will be Impressed!" Impressive tiny ad:
