Hi All,
i passed the SCJP exam today with 77%.Thanks to all for helping me out!
It was a good learning experience.
As far as test is concerned,i found some of questions to be easy.There were 8 questions on thread.Those who are appearing must prepare the topic very well from various books/tutorials as almost half the questions on thread are theoretical; and not based upon code.
In my opinion, its wastage of time to go through questions twice(once quick pass and then regular).My tip:
Answer all questions in first round ,as well as, mark those u r unsure about after answering.You can answer at your best in first go only, only leave those u find very time consuming.That way u answer ~ 50 questions clearly with almost 30-40 minutes remaining.By now u are in good shape and know u can pass the test . Then start from question (61-1)and see/review/unmark all answers quickly and, obviously spend more time on questions u never answered.I feel that makes best utilization of time.
Well, this is my technique, may not work with everybody
At last , Kathy's book is too good!
Any suggestions, if i should go for SCJD or SCWCD first, i want to go for one of them only ,
Thanks,
Rajiv
