Hi guys,
I've just come from passing the SCJP, done in the Prometric's center here in Montreal. I must say that I got a little frustrated since I could have done way better.
Here some thoughts/tips about the test:
Manage your time. In my case, it was a determining factor. I couldn't review my 8 of my marked questions due to that.
I used the book Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2: Study Guide (Exam 310-035) with CDROM
from Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates, which was pretty useful. Thanks guys!
In general the level of the questions were pretty similar to the ones offered in the book and even easier then the ones from MasterExam (CDROM)/ MArcus Green's test (on the net)
The only thing I think could be improved in the book would be on the matter of Threads exercises. I found the ones in the real test way more time consuming to solve. I got them right though, but it really did cost me precious minutes... (needed them for the review)
Anyway, the real important thing is that now I'm a SCJP. It feels good.
Best Regards,
Maur�cio De Maria.
