I finally broke down and took the test. Passed with 84%. Lots of thread and exception questions. Quite a few questions that made me calculate the variables at the end of a series of loops. 5 IO questions and 4 AWT questions. 1 garbage collection question. Overall, I would say that it wasn't an easy test.
Congrats, Thomas! What made you decide to finally go for it? My perception has been that if you've got a few years of experience under your belt, no one really cares much if you're certified or not. Did you discover otherwise, or did you take the test for other reasons? I'm thinking I might finally have to take the SCJP myself just so I can then go for the SCJWCD (since I have little actual experience in web components, a certification there would be more useful to me.) So I'm curious what your motivation was. Again, congratulations!

My motivation was that I had a free voucher to take the test. I also noted that there are a lot of things on the test that I don't use on a regular basis so studying for the test was actually a learning experience.
