Hiya ranchers,
I made it too successfully with a score of 96%. The exam was okay. lots of easy questions, there were some tricky ones too.
Just be alert.
------------
Here goes my experience and advice to aspiring scjp's
1. Read the questions clearly and see what it asks.
2. Read all the answer choices.
3. If you have even a slight doubt, mark it, and get back to it later.
4. Questions on Util were the easiest.
5. Lots of questions on threads, io as already mentioned by many folks.
6. I had to face all my thread questions at one shot, they came one after the other. got bugged at one point of time.
7. I refereed to Khalid and lil bit to RHE, but mainly Khalid.
8. I took lots of mock exams on the net. Take as many as possible, never mind if you dont get a good score..try to learn from your mistakes and try to improve.
9. You learn a lot from the mock exams.
10. Participate in javaranch It really helps.
11. Just for the record, I got 90% in Marcus greens 1st exam, and 79% in the second. I dint take the third.
12. I had taken a java course before, so preparing for the exam was not my first exposure to java.
Thats it i guess guys, will be around...

Hi Rajashree,
Questions from IO were pretty straight forward. Easy ones. If you referring to Khalid you will do great. Dont worry too much about IO.
