Hi Everybody,
Today I cleared the SCJP2 with 89%. I am so happy that I can't express.
I would like to thank JavaRanch at first place and not to forget Khalid Mughal and Simon Roberts & Philips Heller.
These are the two books I used plus I took help from Bill Brogden's ExamCram and Patrick Naughton's Java 2 Complete Reference.
I took almost 2 1/2 months for preerations along with my Full Time Job devoting 2-3 hrs daily.
The Best thing I think is that I got this score without using JQ+.
Most of the persons who qualify say they used JQ+ so I decided to do SCJP2 without JQ+. I may would have got more if I would have used it.
But yes I left no Mock Exam I did almost all the Mocks I could get from all the resources on the net and JavaRanch was a Gateway for all this stuff.
I got realy hard questions from Threads that too lengthy ones.
Rest all was fine 4-5 from IO and 4-5 from Collection.
My topic wise score is:
Delaration & Access control---------------- 87%
Flow Control & Exception Handling----------100%
Garbage Collection-------------------------100%
Language Fundamentals---------------------- 100%
Operators and Assignment------------------- 85%
Overloading Overriding Runtime Type and OO ------100%
Threads------------------------------------- 71%
AWT-----------------------------------------100%
Lang----------------------------------------50%
UTIL---------------------------------------- 100%
IO------------------------------------------ 80%
I got 3 questions where I hade to type the answers.
One was what will be the value of a String variable
I gave the answer in " ---" quotes.
Another asked to type the output
I gave the answer in " " quotes and that is where I think I went wrong.And that lowered my score in Lang.
I think I should not have used double quotes for the output of program though for the value of a String variable they are valid.
I would like to help u all in all the possible ways I can.

Congrats!
I'm not sure why you're so proud you did it without JQ+, all it does is save you searching the internet for lots of mock exams. I don't think just having JQ+ will increase your score, you either understand the fundamentals or you don't!
