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..
good luck in the following exams!

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.
