I finally passed the SCJP exam with a 76%. Personally, I think there was some divine intervention going on from the big guy upstairs. It also helped that I studied my ass off for several months. I appreciate the help from Valentin Crettaz, Marilyn deQueiroz, Rob Ross, JavaRanch and the authors of Mike Meyers' Passport - Java2. It was a well written book and I highly recommend buying it.
