Dear friends,
This was my best valentine day of my life. I cleared SCJP with 86%. I have around 1.5 years of Software Development experience & am currently working on EJB. I have practised extensively.

I made 3 silly mistakes which i will never forget.
This is the break up I got.
I scored 100% in operators,garbage collection, flow control and exception handling,Overloading,Overridding,Runtime type , in java.io
85% in Threads (7-8 questions), 88% in Lang fundas-- 50% in awt,util and lang.(That was really silly, but the question were quite tricky!!)
Following are some of the after thoughts I have which I hope will help you all who wants to CRACK the SCJP.
>> I dont believe in coming back to answer latter. I gave each question enough time to get them right. I had marked the questions (but answered them) which I found to be worth giving a second look. So I was only left with 10 minutes after I reached 59th question. That I utilised to review my marked questions.So decide hopw your are
going to answer.
> Keep a target of 55/59 questions ie higher than 90%.
> The new exam is not that Tough.But they ask tricky questions.
> In multiple choice questions read each option carefully as you will find most of the options quite correct.
> Prepare well for fill in the blank type of question. I got one wrong, which was not a logical error.The answer was correct but ...
> Dont overlook the lang, util packages.(If you want to score 90++)
> Practise as much coding as you can. Dont just read.
> I have made notes which I am editing. I used Simon Roberts, Jaworski initially but towards the end just read Khalid (An excellent book but goes too deep).Downloaded many tests, Java Ranch was great, I downloaded many tutorials and notes made by other fello SCJP's (BUT frankly never got time to go through them).
> Don't practise test exams on the previous day of your exam.
> I had got around 5 question on inner classes.
> Note that many question were mixed up ie threads with inner classes etc.

Will get back to you again!!!Have a happy Valentines.
