Hello from Romania,
I have just passed the SCJP 1.2 exam, missing 5 questions out of 59. I notice that most people take the 1.4 exam, does this have any impact on 1.2? Is it kind of "outdated"?
About the exam: it's hard, but not as hard as I thought. I mean, if you study and get your hand dirty with some Java code it isn't at all difficult to get a passing score. I only had the RHE book, as a study guide, I got the rest of the study material from the Internet. Maha Ana's tips are great, it really pays off paying attention to the details in the exam.
As some here pointed out, there are many questions about threads, those are the hardest in my opinion, so understanding threads is a must for this exam. Another favorite issue seems to be overloading vs. overriding, but I don't think anybody will sit the exam before getting this one right
Besides the RHE book, I also read Velmurugan's study notes, they are awesome. This is the BEST study guide for the SCJP exam you can get for free! Downloadable from here: http://www.geocities.com/velmurugan_p/notes.html
