Dear friends,
This is Harsh. I passed SCJP2 exam and I got 96% !!!.
I have been regularly participating in different forums/egroups for SCJP2 and I got great help from friends like you.
I really feel proud to be part of such forums. Also it would be selfish of me, if I don't help others by sharing my experience with them.
I hope you are aware of the revision of the pattern of SCJP2. During my study period I came across enormous number of websites for mock exams/test engines. The latest pattern is available at http://suned.sun.com/USA/certification/java_news_faq.html.
The best site in my knowledge for discussions/mock exams, is javaranch(http://www.javaranch.com/maha/_Mock_Exams/_mock_exams.html). You can get a large number of mock exams there.
But once the pattern is changed, there comes a need to update the exams based on the latest pattern. To some extent this has been done, but not very satisfactorily.
The best book in my knowledge for preparation is Java2 Certification Study Guide (by robert, heller and ernest).
One thing I have noticed during last two months is people like me end up wasting a lot of time in searching for the resources. Towards that end, the best help one gets is from the Test Simulation Engines. It not only helps save your time but also give you better feel of the actual exam. There are many Simulation engines available on the net like jcertify, j@whiz, jqplus.
I tried all but I found j@whiz(www.whizlabs.com/jwhiz) most useful. To my knowledge it has the largest collection of questions and the best thing is the pattern is very much updated and the interface simulation is great, specially with recent update with lot of questions on threads and IO acc to current trend.
Also dont miss the marcus green mock exams.
Thanks and regards
Harsh

Not to dispise your opinion but it is amusing to me that you posted the exact same mail a couple of months ago on Marcus's site ( http://www.jchq.net/discus/messages/1/21258.html? ) and and on yahoogroups ( http://groups.yahoo.com/group/javacertstudy/message/7231 )
May be changing the text atleast could help
take care
Dinesh.

Thanks for the wishes.
Well i used to get around 85-90% in j@whiz ,in practice and final tests. i got 75% in the diagnostic test.
It costs Rs 495/-.
Also give more focus on IO (basically constructors of file clasess like FileOutputStream) and Threads (synchronization and runnable interface).
All the best
harsh
