Passed SCJP with just 64% though I have been getting 80-90% in the mock exams. I knew that 8 hrs hilly journey by bus, and upon that, not getting a wink of sleep all night at a new place will take its toll(I was feeling very sore the morning of the exam) but i never thought that things could go so bad.
Anyway thats life, its very painful and difficult to accept but it also makes me more determined to come back strongly in the next venture.
Would-Be-SCJP's should take GREAT care that they take enough REST before the exam, more importantly when you are travelling QUITE MUCH for the exam. Exam is not tough but its very CRUCIAL to be RELAXED and FULLY ALERT on the exam day.
May God Bless that I was the last person with this bad experience and everybody else gets the 100% due of his/her efforts!
Down but NOT OUT,
Puneet Narang

Sorry to hear about the difficult trip to the test location but dont be too cncerned wiht your score. the important part is that you passed - regardless of your score you can say "I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer". A lot of people probably wouldn't have gone to the great lengths you did to take and pass the test!! Most would have given up.
Congrats on passing and best of luck for the future

Hi Puneet,
Congrats ! The hardship that you had faced would have been erased by the sweet success, by now. You have rightly said,
"Anyway thats life, its very painful and difficult to accept but it also makes me more determined to come back strongly in the next venture."
All the very best for your bright future.

A score you think is too low is a reason to go ahead and do the developer exam. Then, hopefully, no one will even ask about your programmer score.

Thanks Dave, thank you so much for the encouraging words.
Thanks Padmaja, you have been a source of inspiration for all of us. Very interesting was the way we lamented Lala when he passed that stupid comment. The feeling that time of "How dare u say anything to our hardworking friend?" was great and talks about the unity of all of us javaranchers. So, whats on now, Padmaja?
Thanks Shyamsunder, for the encouragement.
Thanks Ashik, u have been a very dear friend of all of us. Most seen at javaranch too. Moderators must be noting the great work by you at javaranch and I am sure you would be given the chance to be a bartender one day!( treat for saying that later from you!!!). Looking for a job, Ashik?
Thanks Lora, I will do well in the next certification with your kind wishes.
Thanks Jane, ur notes were very helpful.

Dear Puneet,
Frankly speaking, a lot more subjects interest me, say, UML, servlets, jsp, XML, EJB, etc (quite interested on the middle-tier component architecture to learn). OOPs, this is going to take a lonnnnng time to concentrate on one and move on to another. So, I can say that I am in zero position.
What is your next move ?

Dear Padmaja,
At present I am thinking of nothing else than a job. Left a good job after my MBA for doing Java(At that time IT was as hot as Aishwarya, now its like Jayalalitha!!!). So, idea now is to get some practical experience alongwith that, work on SCWCD.
Will definitely inform when I get a job and about experiences there.
Best Regards,
Puneet

Dear Ashik,
Yes I am looking at the job as well and like you quite close in getting one. The good news, what I am hearing from people, is that IT is picking up again! Someone who's having his company in New Delhi was telling me that we are getting the business again and also many others are getting more projects now. Whats the news from Dhaka?
I will start a bit of work on SCWCD. Any other good links u know apart from link here at javaranch? People saying its easier than JCP is good news.
Best Regards,

Why are you so desperate to see Jayalalitha slim down
Any.....???
So you want to keep writing jokes till sun(not sun microsystems) rises in west???
All the Best

Whats your priority now, Leena?

I am a BE fresh computer engineer,
I have got selected in a CMM level 5 certified company(lots of java there),But at present they are posponing our joining dates due to market conditions.So at present i am just hoping they give us joining date as soon as possible
(Wish me luck )
In the mean time i am preparing for a national exam(java is one of the 5 papers in this - but has lot more than SCJP syllabus)
All the best to you in finding a good job
(other than Jayalalitha oriented )
regards,
leena
