I had given SCJP2 exam on 9th June, got 96%.
When I finished my exam, I was expecting result 85 - 88 %. But when lady there processed the result and taking printout, initially I thought I will not ask result till she don't give me printout, but I couldn't wait, I asked that lady, what's the result, she coolly said, 96%, I was shocked, said CAN'T BELIEVE. It is very happy and satisfying moment for me, which I want to share with you.
Out of 59 I got 57 correct, lose 1 in Threads and 1 in Flow Control & Exceptions.
I am very much thankful to JavaRanch, Moderators, participant of discussion forum. I must tell that, I could get such good score due to JavaRanch only. The discussion here gave me good information and tricks of exam. And most important is that JavaRanch helped me lot in keeping my motto for exam.
Initial 5-10 questions were easy. So I was feeling comfortable. Then I got some tricky questions on Flow control, language Fundamentals. In total I got 60-70% questions as single answer, and rest as multiple choice questions. And one question was fill-in-answer type.
During my practice of mock exams, It was my experience that, once I finished test, I was reluctant to review the answers, and If I do review, I couldn't catch the wrong answer, because I used to think on same line.
Thats why I had given more time for solving test. I finished 95 mins, and I got 25 mins for review. I had marked 15-18 questions. I had coolly revised those, and I found 4-5 answers were wrong, I changed those.
Initial I used Robert, Hieler's book (RHE), then I used Moughal Khalid's book. I found these both books very helpful. I also used Velmurugan's notes, which helped me lot in last day preparation and revision.
Believe me, SCJP2 exam is not that hard which I used to think.
Once again thanks to JavaRanch and participants.
