Hi all,
I am a regular follower of discussions in this site .This is my first post.
To day I passed SJCP with 81% (not a good score) . I was aiming for something above 90%. Folks SJCP exam is not a cake walk. It is really tough...... . Two other candidates who appeared for the exam along with me failed and got very pathetic scores. Donot be fooled by the mock exams. None of the mock exams seem to reflect the degree of difficulty accurately. I was getting above 90% on almost all the mock exams. Contrary to the expectation there were lot of questions on IO. Exam is quite heavy on threads too.
My best suggestion is do lot of coding (and pray god !!!).
My special thanks to Maha Anna whose lucid explanations helped me to understand fundamental concepts.
Regards
Ganesh Raj

Hi,
But you passed it, thats great and its not a bad score anyways. Can you just tell what type of questions were there for threads and I/O as lot of ppl are saying that they are facing strict questions in these areas. And what about AWT, layout managers stuff???
Thanks,

Thanks to all of you.
Mudassar :
Questions on IO were not simple . I got really tough questions.You should know the concepts clearly. Regarding threads , if you know how synchronized methods and blocks behave you can easily answer the questions. Questions on awt and layout were not difficult.

Regards
Ganesh
