July 4th 2002 I failed the SCJP 1.2 by 2%,
I scored 59%.
Let me explain why this was so disappointing... I work fulltime (mon-fri) and I am married with a young child, my wife works weekends and evenings so I have to babysit, this does not give me an awful lot of spare time to study.
I looked at my weaknesses after the first test and purchased the sample exams from sun, I also studied the objectives closer (this is very very important, or you will end up spending time learning stuff that is not relevent to the exam)
I used Khalid Mughals book (exclusively) and downloaded a java editor to play with code (www.jcreator.com).
It was a full four months before I had the chance to resit the exam on 4th November 2002, I had to push myself to study whenever I had a spare moment.
I found the exam (1.2) harder than the first time I had taken it, but the extra study paid off
and I passed with 66%...not a great score but considering my circumstances I was just happy to pass.
