Hi, buddies.
I passed SCJP1.4 with 91% yesterday. I'm happy with the score. Many thanks to JavaRanch, and to the 'big cows': Bert Bates (with a lovely 'mooooo'), Valentin Crettaz, Jim Yingst, Mayuri Lakhani and Sam Vabien, who answered me many questions.
I'm currently in a university and have had 2 java related courses (one is Data structure by Java). There are many stuffs in the test not covered by my academic studies, things like detailed rules in polymorphism and encapsulation, nested classes, multithreading and Frameworks. The hardest questions I met were about multithreading (maybe my knowledge in this area is too fundemantle). I should have pay more attention to the exact process of how several threads worked with several object concurrently.
One thing to remind those who about to take the test is: there are several pool questionares at the beginning of the test, and they are being given after test time (120 minutes) starts counting down. But don't get nervous, since there are only 4 to 5 poll questions, and you are generally have enough time to finish all test questions.
Best wishes,
Westwindode.

Thank you guys...
Poll questions, as i remember, are like Do you allow your scores to be used for research, or Do you want to receive info about ... products etc...
what do you think your level of Class definition(expert, intermidiate...). They are easy to answer and won't take much time.
just relax.
Best wishes.
