OK :
I've studied for about 3 weeks in the book from Roberts/Heller/Ernest (well that is about 2 weeks, 5 months ago and one week just before the exam ).
I also often develop with Java, so except from theory or special cases, some things were already aquired.
Mock exams are REALLY usefull.
Many questions about I/O (7-8)
Many questions about thread (around 10)
Important note :
Before rushing into a page-long piece of code question, first check these points :
-if a method is called from main, check whether it is static.
-(same thing for member variables access)
-when a class does extend another, check whether all overriding methods are not more private than original, and also whether overriding methods possess correct return type
These little tips could gain you some precious minutes, while giving you a fast correct answer.
Believe you'll all get it !

JavaRanch really is a gold mine. Hanging around the Ranch for a couple of weeks is worth 10 - 15 points in the SCJP exam. Great score.

Ashik :
You know, my current contract with my company will end
by 30 January 2002.
So, either I negociate a bigger enough salary, or I'll find a company which proposes better conditions.
Well, I hope so, but french market is a bit special..
Sonir :
Believe that one month should be enough.
just continue to read your book thoroughly, try many mock exams (Marcus Green, javaprepare, well all of the exams from the mock part of javaranch are valuable).
Take it easy, as many said, eat well , sleep well, and avoid the
simplest pits I mentioned in an earlier post.
I/O and Thread are mainly about knowledge, so try storing the most you can in your mind (join() is not mentioned in your book, so see this somewhere else).
Don't get persuaded that questions of the real exam are more difficult than those in mocks, because they actually are not (some may say the contrary, but this must be because of pressure on the very day).
When you get asked "which three answers are the good ones ?", elimination is also a good way to get them.
Note that the real exam provides you with the exact number of good answers for each question (so, elimination can be very efficient).
Hope this helps.
Arnaud.

Well, in addition, I must say that I NEVER matched 91%
in any mock exam.
Mark any questions you doubt about, answer without marking those
you are confident with, and use the whole of your 2 hours to
try thinking back on the "personal hardest" questions.

Arnaud.
