I took the SCJP exam today at the kforce.com's Educational Services office here in Tampa, Florida USA. I scored an 81%, which is not bad since I only studied for 3.5 weeks. Thanks to Java Ranch & Marcus Green.
The book I used was the newest version of RHE.
The simulator I used was JQPlus. For those looking to take the test, I highly suggest you get JQPlus. The questions are a little bit harder than the actual exam.
Here were my mock exam scores:
01/26/2001 - JCertify4.0 - 54%
01/29/2001 - JCertify4.0 - 59%
02/02/2001 - JCertify4.0 - 76%
02/03/2001 - RHE Final Exam - 50%
02/06/2001 - RHE Final Exam - 70%
02/09/2001 - Marcus Exam #2 - 71%
02/11/2001 - JQ+ Exam #1 - 68%
02/12/2001 - JQ+ Exam #2 - 75%
02/13/2001 - JQ+ Exam #3 - 80%
02/15/2001 - JQ+ Exam #4 - 70%
02/15/2001 - JQ+ Exam #5 - 68%
02/16/2001 - JQ+ Exam #6 - 78%
02/17/2001 - JQ+ Exam #7 - 73%
02/18/2001 - JQ+ Exam #8 - 76%
02/18/2001 - JQ+ Random Exam - 68%
02/19/2001 - SCJP Exam - 81% !!!
The best advice I can give is when taking the test:
1. Use all of the time to review.
2. Don't jump to conclusions as to what area the question is trying to test you on. It is amazing how just a few lines of code can "drive you crazy" trying to figure out the answer!!
