Hello,
I passed the SCJP 1.4 yesterday with a 93%, or 57/61. Thanks alot to Kathy and Bert's book, that was my main study tool, I'd say that book helped get me 85% of my 93%. For anyone else who's studying, here's what helped me, along with my opinion of how much it helped prepare me for the exam:
Kathy and Bert's book, read it straight through, did the chapter self-tests after reading it, and did both masterexams. Went through several chapters again, including threads, inner classes, and language fundamentals. Very helpful for SCJP1.4 preparation.
Marcus Green's exam 1 and 2, skipped questions on AWT and anything not 1.4, good for raising my test score by several %points probably
JQPlus V4 trial exam, again good for raising my test score by several %points probably
first of Dan Chisholm's comprehensive test(scored 60%), no offense to Dan but they were too hard with too much in-depth knowledge of certain topics, so I didn't take anymore of those
Well, hope that helps out other people. The exam wasn't too hard itself, but probably because I knew what to look for. Surprisingly, I didn't have any questions that had a static method calling an instance member, but then again that might have been one of the problems I missed. I had plenty of time to take it and even submitted it early.
Joe
P.S. I saw my name on the errata list page, even though my contribution was small, so thanks alot Bert, or Kathy(whoever put my name on).
