88%, this morning(10-08-2001).
Thanks to this great java website. Thanks to the helpful ranches here. This is a really great website, at least, for SCJP preparation.
Most questions are basic. Most questions are not too tricky. Pay more attention to the basic concepts!! Don't be fooled by some mock exams with question like this "what is the value of Math.abs(Float.MIN_VALUE)". Of course, I am not saying not to do mock exams. Actually it's important to do some good mock exams. RHE is a good guide book. I basically followed this book, plus lots of mini programs.
Any question about the exam is welcome. Of course no actual exam question.

Thank you guys. some details.
probably 5 questions on IO. Need be familiar with the different constructors --- take what as argument, and how to chain them.
As far as AWT, not much, maybe 3, at most 4. very easy stuff about Layout managers.
some questions about immutable string and Integer, but not that difficult.
Maybe it is real exam, I spend 90 minutes to finish all questions and went over once. I usually need 60 minutes to do the mocks, like Green's. Another reason maybe is it's easier to answer on paper.
Be careful with every question, spacially for compilation error questions. I almost missed one. Go over and check if you have time, I usually don't check with mocks.
