My objective was to just pass the exam because at the age of 52 there are other important priorities in life and it is difficult to retain new information!
I am pleased to say that today I achieved that objective with a score of 60% in the first try!
I thank every participant in this forum for helping me.
My special thanks are due to Marcus Green for his excellent tutorial and mock exams.The examulator is wonderful.The exam questions closely resembled his mock exams.I got 80%,76% and 88% in his three mock exams and 88% in the examulator.
Dan Chisholm mock exams are excellent but was too much for me to handle. I could never score more than 30% in any of his mock exams.
I also used the notes so thoughtfully put on the net by Roger.Thanks Roger.
I did the mockexams at javaprepare and javacertificate.They are really good.
I was consistantly getting scores in all of these mock exams between 70 and 80% and I knew where I stood before I took the exam.
I regret not buying K&B book.But since passing the exam is not the end I will buy it now!
Looking at the exam questions and its style gave me the feeling that they are not out there to trick you but urge you to pass provided you know the fundamentals of the all the objectives listed.
So there you are my fellow ranchers who are aspiring to pass the exam-JUST DO IT!
La Vish.

Congrats sir. Very inspiring. I thought I was just too old (35) or too late to get and passed this SJCP 1.2 exam. I agree, there are more priorities than the exam, of course family first(BTW, God is in center). I just wondrin how do you manage the time? Are you not working anymore, no house chores or what? It seems you manage your time wisely. Again I salute your discipline.
