Personal reasons ? I don't seem to understand your personal reason. Please enlighten. There is a recent thread from Ajith about the same. I'm sure he wouldn't agree with u.
Yes, Its difficult for me to believe you till u prove it ! Just give us the link to the sun's page which confirms this.
Well I'd love to believe that u did score 100%.
Why don't u give us the link to the page which confirms this ?
It difficult to believe an 'anonymous' person passing with 100%.
Lets add one more person to the list of 100% AFTER we see the link to the page ???
Hai Hai,
Haven't u heard - kaal kare so aaj kar, aaj kare so abh.
But if you take the exam today, u still have to pay 8000 Rs.
However you have to attempt 120 qts in 2 hrs.
All the best !
Now you regret why u did't exam the exam earlier.
Deepak :-)
I've read XML is the language for universal data format.
Does that it can replace my RDBMS ?
I am from Pune just cleared SCJP with 98 %. I had been to the Sylvan Prometric Center and inquired about the developers exam. The developers exam has been hiked by 3000 Rs but not only SCJP exam that is.

1. Are we supposed to type {} if we have to typein some class declarations?.
2.What about " " for strings?
3.true,false, null can we select them as keywords?
No, they are literals
4. Any ambiguous queries like
Range of weightx and weight y in GridBagConstraints?
Non-negative integers. Range need NOT be 0.0 to 1.0
- Thanks

Hello Everyone,
Thanx a ton for all your wishes......
Here's the link to The Java Language Specs (JLS) :
If you have problems with the above link, lemme know.
haijun,, read more about XML certification here :
Thanx Marcela,
Well I was gonna wait for the beta, but I had to update my resume asap. I have to look for a job asap.
hi Guys,
So I finally made it after 3 months of JLS, and JavaRanch.
And NO mock tests !
That's right, the only test I took was the Beta exam (which was more than just a mock test) last week.
Guys, one word of advice for u ... Read the Java Language Specs - esp the chapter on Classes, Interfaces, Arrays and Expressions.
If u can't find it on the Net, I'll mail it to u personally.
For I/O - I referred to the API and stuck the objectives.
For AWT - Core Java gives a good explanation, RHE is good for event handling.
For Threads, refer to CoreJava Volume 2 - nothing beats it !
Be good to yourself - read the JLS
I wonder where I went wrong... I think its just not possible to score 100% even if u get all qts right. Its probably programmed that way.
After all, noone's perfect, and Sun very well believes in it !
My next goal - SCJD and an XML certification !
All the best to all of u out there.....
I'd love to be of help to anyone who plans to take the real exam after October as well.
From the beta exam, its pretty obvoius the new exam has the same level of difficulty. However, you are now provided with the number of correct choices to be selected in case of more than one correct answers.
