I passed SCJP1.4 with 91% not a bad score
, but i was aiming at 95-96%.
We can pass exam easily but, if u r aiming at high score(which we need to),definately u need to work hard.I spent 2 and 1/2 month effectively.I did'nt read any book completely, i gone through Robert and Simmons book that too for 1.2 exam.Only thing is i solved lot of mock exam,mainly Dan's exam.These are tough,but once we understood the concept we can
answer any question.
Fallowing are my tips,
--Please plan urself and fallow it strictly on day to basis.Coz only diciplined approach can take to our goal quickly.
--Take lot of mock tests.
--Actively participate in discussions like in javaranch.They really gives lot of tips.
--Try to solve tough problem , coz these will give lot of scope to know more and better.Ex Dan's exam.
-- Concentrate on Thread and Java Fundamentals , Operators much.Thread is area where i scored less(62%) and is the area where i studied much.So if u r aiming at 95% and above, then u should be good at Threads.
--I solved Tests from JQPlus tool.This one i won in a luclky draw contest.Its really good and is at same level of exam.
This is all about my story.
My heartly thanks to all members of javaranch.Mainly Kathy and Bert,Dan Chisholm ,Valentin Crettaz who helped me by answering my queries.
Thanks a lot and wish you all the best to all javaranch members.
