Tony, on those topics you did excellently.
Make an analysis:
What kind of questions/topics stumped you?
Did you run out of time?
Are you learning just enough java to get through the exam or are you actively programming with java?
What kind of books are you reading? Crammers or
books that go deeper into the language concepts?
Have you done enough mock exams? Can you understand and do those at http://www.danchisholm.net ?
You will get through next time, but make sure you go into that exam room with a real good confident feeling. Go for the 1.4 exam to keep current.

-Barry

Tony,
Try going thru this doc
[URL= http://www.geocities.com/valoxo/scjp2]Ashraf Fouad's concentrated guide to SCJP at: http://www.geocities.com/valoxo/scjp2[/URL]
And while reading this doc, if for any point you feel that you are not able to understand it/or you didn't know abt it before reading the doc, try referring a good book or the JLS for that. Don't try to cram any point.
Try making programs at ur own, that is the best way to learn & understand Java. U remember more when you see the output coming from the code, than just reading from the book.
And yes, try to give urself another 2-3 months, and don't take the exam in just next 10 days.

Thanks guys for your fast replay .I will give myself good time to repeat all sections and doing some code also will be helpful.
One more questions about 1.2 I feel if I got good score in 1.2 ver I will keep preparing to 1.2 as you see I got in i/o 80% and in awt 60% I will not spend more time about that tow sections is that good choice …..
Looking forward to hear from you
Thanks
Tony

I thnk you should continue with 1.2. The IO and AWT questions are fairly simple topics. I would concentrate on working through code examples for threads and control structures as those are the trickiest areas that require more than just syntax memorisation.
From my own experience the best thing to do is to go over the Marcus Green mocks several times until you know where you are going wrong. They are great exams ,close to the real thing. Download a copy of forte for java and just bang out the code examples. Give yourself about 3 weeks with a couple of hours at night and you'll be there.

Sorry to hear that Tony. But don't fret, you will pass next time.
I definitely suggest going through the specific areas you scored low in. I would go over Threads, data types and how they need to be casted or not, and how objects are passed by reference vs passed by copy.
Doing some sample code on your own can really help get this information ingrained in your mind.
Take as many Mock exams as you can and the study notes that are all in the FAQ are very helpful.
Good luck.
Mark

Hi Tony,
I am sorry to hear that. There was a time when even I used to get about 55% in mock exams. So I reread the Java 2 certification book. I also read the JLS, not the whole thing, just the topics that I thought I was weak in. Then solved lots of mock exams. If I thought that a particular answer was wrong, I used to run it through a compiler, then change somethings to see what the output is etc. All of this should not take a lot of time, I will give it about 2 weeks of dedicated work. Hope this helps!

Hi Tony,
You are close! A couple of suggestions - take the SCJP1.4 exam the next time there is no I/O or AWT on the test. The only 1.4 topic that you need to read up on is assertions. (Easy Topic)
I used the Exam Cram by Bill Brogden. It is a good book and useful exam. He also has some more mock exams on line.
Take Marcus Greens' 3 mock exams right before the exam. There is a good correlation between the scores that you get on Marcus' mock exams and the real thing.
The cut off was 68% for the SCJP1.4.
Good Luck
