Hi guys,
I have passed the SCJP1.4 last monday(May10) with 68%...I was expecting around 75%....but threads and carbage collection..tripped me got low scores in those sections...I had no prior experience with JAVA.. Here is my recipe for passing.
Read patrick naughton book for three months on the cert topics..practiced little bit.
Took mock exams ..every now and then to see where I am at..
Bought K&B three weeks before the exam date and been through that twice and took the mock exams ...K&B helped me to focus on exam objectives with care and really helped me to improve my confidence level to take the exam..
Thats it ..I should have practiced to get good score..but I guess this is OK..Now I am wondering what to do next..Guys you can throw some suggestions..
Mock exams I have used ..
Marcus Green exams
Exam Gram free exam
Dan's Mock tests
Javacertficate.com exams
I thank you all to help achieve this.

How about this one ?
String x=new String("abc")
How many objects will be created in the above statement..I thought it will create only one object..but K&B says 2 ..
please explain
HI Guys,
How many multiple choices will be there in real exam? most of the mock exams are having more than 4 choices....I thought they would have only 4 options to choose...
thanks,

Hi Guys,
I work in software services company. Here are my reasons for doing certification...
1.My company reimburses the test fee(if I pass)and encourages people get certified,so that they can sell services to clients "we have got people who have got certified in this".
2.I also have to show what I have done to improve my skill level(value addition) other than doing my project.
3.Helps me to move to a different project rather than doing the same monotonus work like data migration etc...helps me to sell myself even inside the company.
4.Helps to improve my marketability in the job market.
5.last but not the least,certification helps you to improve your self confidence on the subject and proud of your commitment to achieve something.
I have not got the certification yet..I am working towards that..I haven't read any book after my college(its been 6 years)...its tough get back on the study mode..I feel its worth it... take it easy guys....
Thanks,

What will the following class print ?
class InitTest
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
int a = 1;
int b = 1;
a = a++;
b = b++ + b;
System.out.println(a+ " "+b);
}
}


How come the answer is 1,3 for the above code? I am not able to get my head around this stuff...please somebody explain. I thought it 2,3.
Hi Rashi,
As far as I know when you use hashset..you cannot guarentee the order in which it will be added in the list...I guess its using the hashcode to order the list....am I right folks...It may be platform or SDK version dependant as well.
Thanks
