Hi all !
With NIL programming experience, I joined E-Commerce course (6 months) out of sheer boredom in Nov 2000. When I completed, I realised that I am good at NOTHING and hence I took java in hand to dive in.
I managed to clear the exam with bare 67% today, yet the tension is over and no more java objects flying in my dreams. I am happy that I am a member of SCJP family (so too javaranch).
Lastly, to mention about me, I am a mother of 4 1/2 year old intelli-kid and the iron rule is that I can use computer when he doesn't occupy it.
All I need now is sleep, sleep and nothing but sleep.
Once again, thanks a lot "Javaranch".
- Padmaja

Padmaja,
Passing with 67 % is no great deal.

CONGRATULATIONS Padmaja!
It sure is a great deal. Sun considers you have a good grasp of the concepts when you pass. Obviously the critics don't appreciate how difficult the exam can be. No two exams are alike. One can be more difficult than the the next. We have experienced programmers that were blown away with the level of difficulty.
Job well done,

THANKS A LOT.
Staying in Bahrain (Gulf), I don't see any green pastures (in literal sense too : ). It is a bit costly to be a SCJP for a housewife but undoubtedly a PRIDE POSSESSION, isn't it.
What should be my next move ? Suggestions welcome !!
One thing I am sure about is, I am going to freak out this weekend (Thursdays & Fridays here).
