thanks all for your wishes.
though my score is not so high but i am happy to b a SCJP.
my score in various scetions is as follows-
declarations and access control..87%
flow control and exception handling..57%
operators and assignments..42%
in awt around 3 ques. based on asking the return type of methods in eventhandling.and yes 1 ques.asking knowledge of all layout managers of which gridbaglayout was the correct option.
operators mainly revolving around preincrement and postincrement inside the conditions of loops(really difficult)
single ques on gc which i got wrong.
IO ques. mainly about constructors,and 1 on encoding possibility.
around 5-6 ques. on overloading and overriding,which i found quite easy may b because i had a very clear picture about this thing.
thread ques. were such that i was not sure about a single.3-4 were code based and others without code.u really need to write enough code on multithreading.
few ques. on math class methods,extending vector class,instantiating an interface,top level class access modifiers etc.
now i would like to tell about my preparations.i come from biology background and have no programming experience in any language.first computer language i started is java.the book i first refered to undersatnd the language is patrick naughton.
after studying it for around 2 months i decided to prepare for scjp.got a guide by jammie jaworskie.studied it thoroughly for 1 month.then came accross this site and realized that i should but a guide by RHE.i bought but never went through it completely,used it just as reference where i had doubt.after this i was scoring just 60% in marcus green mocks.then i purchased jwhiz stimulator and gave all practise tests improving my score from 60's to 80's.my avg.in 9 tsets was 73.7%.and my score in real exam is 44/59=74.6%,which was rounded to 74%.
after giving jwhiz i was still not confident and then went through API documentation which really helped me score 100% in io.,i also went through velmurugan's notes but only for io and threads.
i was expecting actual score between 68-72%.
javaranch continuously inspired me to work hard.specially the section of results.this is a wonderful site.thanks to alll the members of this site.
