Hi All,
Passed the SCJP on Friday with 74%. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Javaranch for a great site.
The score was not so great as I was hitting the high eighties in most mock exams and due mainly to poor time management - however a pass is a pass!. A word of advice - watch the clock! Do no spend too long on any one question as there are many shorter/easier questions to do.
The questions themselves are relatively straightforward with lots of code samples - a warning however as some of these are rather long (around 30 lines). Just concentrate on the basics and when you start to hit the eighties in the mock exams its probably time to take the test.
The reference books that I used were Exam Cram & Exam Prep, RHE, Java in a nutshell. Of these RHE and Exam Prep were the most helpful. I am a freelance developer with eight years experience of client server development using VB, Oracle (SQL/PLSQL), C & Tuxedo.
Many thanks for all your help,
Avinder
