Hi All!
I cleared SCJP with 86%. Thank God! I would have happy even if I had got 62% because I just didnt want to study this whole stuff again! :-)
The paper was very easy! Infact I had 25 mins to review and when I finally clicked "done" it directly printed the report! I knew sure I have passed! But still I was pretty tensed! The paper was so easy that I was expecting around 98% ! Anyway I am happy that I got 86% (51/59)!
-I got 100% in IO. All straight questions... on constructors.
-Threads was easy. No long codes. I think I got 1 wrong there.
-Question list:
31- basics/overriding/overloading/constructors/flow/GC etc...
6 - Threads
4 - Java.lang
3 - Java.util (very very very very easy)
5 - Java.awt
6 - Java.io

-I think one should be able to easily pass if they have done enough preparation because you can actually make 23 mistakes!!!
Any help please mail me!!
Cheers!
Vijay.

Thanks All.
Here are some hints that worked for me! Might work for you as well.
1) You will get all questions in sequence. Like Basics first followed by Threads,Lang,Util,Awt and IO. I am not sure everybody gets like this. But atleast I got this way!! So clear up all your basics in my mind and arrange in this order!
2) One question in GC is guaranteed!! So be clear in GC concepts. For example, when a object is eligible for GC??
3) Surely One question in MATH will come!! Be sure you know ALL the methods in MATH.
4) I did say the paper was easy, But I did 8 mistakes... that itself shows you need to look at the question very carefully.
5) I really am a lazy guy, I used to ran out of patience doing these mock exams... with all those vague wordings... In the exam all the questions were very clear.
6) Even if you know the answer, do go thru all the other answers given!
7) Ofcourse do as many mocks as possible!
8) I got as many as 5-6 questions straight from SUN example paper!! When I say the exact same question in the paper I almost laughed! :-) I think I was lucky to get This set of questions!
Got to go , Good luck to All!

Congrats Vijay ,
Very Good tips you had given. I just want some help, you said java.io only constructors ... have u got any notes & can you mail those at sgsathe@rediffmail.com or name the mock site where generally IO questions are appearing most ?

Any way, hope you will continue share your expertise in this forum.
Thanks
Shrikrishna
