Hi Lakhsmi..
join the club..Both me and wife are architects by qualification. and current employment. Currently busy finding out ways to get into IT world..
I have alreacdy spent a few months trying to study and go for SCJP exam. Its tough isn't it as you must yourself are fully aware of the problems related to going into new stuff.
Anyway what is important that following this rat race isn't gonna harm us and we always have our profession to fall back.
Programming, as compared to any systems and mentainance work is better for us as it has that creativity touch in it.
We hope that we could encourage each other and and try not to be inhibited in asking those silly questions that come in ou minds which are just nothing for any IT guys..But hey we are new to it..so what
So hope to see you around on the ranch and lets call ousrselves aspiring programmers from non-programming background..
Cheers

Hi guys and fellow ranchers, so many people have already cleared facing the new exam format but still I didnt see any info about "Border Line Survey".(or may be I missed it).
I know its not a "relevant o java " question but since this forum talks about the exam, it would be nice to about it from somebody who has been through.
Cheers
Thanks
Nasir
Hi Sagar
No not at all, an interface or a class can never extend more than one interfaces or classes. As its gonna completely break the Single Inheritance rule of Java.
what do you think..please post if you need more clarification.
cheers

Hi Bob..
Congrats man, to tell you the truth I would be more than happy to pass with that score. But it ofcourse depends on what you are aspiring for.
Anyway, I recommend you look for a job, get one and there you would get the real education and ofcourse the experience.
Cheers

Hi Kishen
Congrats and thanks for making us (the aspirers) feel easy by saying that exam is not so difficult and the facts about code.
Here I would like to share a very Interesting experience with other ranchers. I failed the exam in july(which I have already disclosed so many times) and scored 51% overall but my score in the topic of Threads was 75%.(May be It was more theory then or I don't know why)
Anyway..its good to feel that its a possible task. LOL .
Cheers
Nasir

Hi Nasir,
Thanks for trying to lift up my mood. Yes I am very very upset and depressed after the exam. I have developed a fear for the computer at home(where I used to study for the exam).
ALL THE BEST TO YOU.

Hi Kav
Answer to most of the questions you have asked is "yes".
You can retake the exam any time after two weeks and you need to pay again for a fresh exam.
Good luck if you are going for it
Cheers

Hey Aparna..
No giving up here on the ranch...Keep it up.
And I am sure you would do fine next time. I have failed once (big deal) but that doesn't mean we stop thinking about it.
Yaa delaying it a little is okay..but stay and hang on with java .
Cheers
Nasir
Congrats Rohit
You must be a happy man
So don't forget to post more details when you return from exam..
As now you would become one the most experienced with the new format,(kidding).
So good Luck
Nasir
