From scratch, approx 300 days and 1500 hours studying. Passed yesterday with 80%. Would like to thank Simon Roberts et al., Khalid A. Mughal et al., Bill Brogden, Bruce Eckel,Javaranch.com, JWhiz.com (excellent tests), JCertify(good in practice mode), Anyone who has ever posted a reply on a forum or resources on the web AND of course Sun for their inspiration and resources. It's been harder than an honours degree in Chemistry or teaching in secondary school but even more rewarding!
Cheers
Jon.

Thanks for your congrats folks.
I should have mentioned that I did a couple of other java exams along the way (available in UK): Association of Computer Professionals (ACP) initial award in Java (a relatively easy written exam), and a City & Guilds level 3 in object orientated programming using Java.
The City & Guilds involved 12 hours of practical exam and was very usefull for AWT/GUI as well as program logic generally.
The first half of the SCJP2 had some very tricky questions, harder than I had seen in most of the practice questions / test engines used(this gave me a shock as I thought that I was very well prepared --- my advice if this happens to you stay calm!)
The second half was similar to most test engines available.
I had been achieving an average of 90% in practice.
Thread questions were tough and so were Operators and Assignment questions(unusually), but at least I passed first time!
