Unbelievable. I got 55% at the SJCP exam, barely making it.
Ok, I admit that I did not prepare for the exam at all.
Why? => I wanted to test my java knowledge and not focus on exam specific way of thinking. I wanted to test my true potential in java so far. I am actually even good in JEE development.
I did not try any of the mock questions or read any tutorial specific to the exam. I just relied on my java learning during past couple of months. I am also coming from a C++ background.

Well, I am only 55% good.
I guess I have to go back and study some more.
I will register for the SCJD this week, and take the SCWD exam by the end of the month. I will not any risk with those two. Mocks and certification books... here I come...

Hello!
I guess that you can't do the SCJD and SCWCD without pass SCJP first...
Am I wrong???

Eduardo: You're right - you need to pass the SCJP before tackling any of the other Sun certs.
Sam: Don't sweat it. You passed. Congrats!
Cheers,
Jeff

you're not wrong . You need to be SCJP to take those exams.

well.. don't agree with that. But what the heck, you're certified and that's good..

Hey Billy, I am meaning to ask you: what are your origins? (if I can ask that).
I am asking because I am from the Ivory Coast and we have people with the last name Tsai over there.
 
I'm sure glad that he's gone. Now I can read this tiny ad in peace!
