I work and the Exam has been paid by the company I work with thus I had to study whenever I had the chance. I read the book and then made a couple of exams including the Marcus Green Mock Exam 1. Then I went on the net including this site and read 3-4 sets of notes and looked a lot at the forums. In the meantime I used to do a lot of discussions with collegues which are preparing for the same exam. WE used to fight for hours and hours. In the last week I worked all marcus green mocks and a lot more tests. In all I think I worked more than 1000 or 2000 questions ( some repeated ). This helped me a lot because a lot of things that you find in questions you won't find in books. Try the questions you have doubt with ... I can assure you that it is the last 2 weeks that you will realize that you are really prepared.

Hi Guys and Dolls
I made it , after 3 months of on and off studying I got the courage to go for it and passed. Now I feel reliefed. I found the exam easier than what I expected. I had a lot of questions on the following
Inner Classes (about 5)
Threads (6-7)
Files (about 5)
AWT+Layout+Events (about 4)
etc...
Well I would like to thank Maha for the exam links provided and all the Java Bartenders , the Sheriff, and all the people who have got their SCJP and participate actively on this site.
It is a very good site. Keep it up.
As a study guide I used Mughal+Rasmussen , the Velmurugan notes and a couple of other sets of notes found on the net..
Regards Java Ranchers
I will pop up from time to time to help others out ! I promise !!

To what I know you cannot
System.gc() or Runtime.gc() simply make a tentative call to run the garbage collector. They do not force at all the garbage collector to be run. Thus the garbage collector may or may not run, but you can never be sure

Hi people, I accepted your result but now have a question :
When you consider the following 3 lines taking i=0 why do you get these results ( considering operator precendence )
i=i++ + 1; //Answer =1
i=i++ + i++; //Answer =1
Why ??
Thanks
