I always used to wonder why everybody posts their result over here when there is a separate place to post their results. Today, I have realized why? It's like you have to share it with everybody with the help of whom, you have achieved this. I'm just coming back from the test center. I passed it with 100%. Yeah...I too couldn't believe when I saw the report :-)))). Not an answer wrong :-)))).
Believe me, the open discussions we have in this forum are really too helpful and boosts your confidence level. Also, K&B book is simply too good. Thanks Kathy & Bert for writing such a book that covers this exam comprehensively.
I will try to contribute to this forum more constructively from now on.

Fantastic score, gongrats
I'm busy preparing at the moment and I must say, 52% seems far off to me right now, so 100% is the impossible dream for me
Well done.

Well I did that. I admire Deep for his perfect score. Please read my posts carefully.

I wanted to know how many more guys got 100% and you seem to be interested only in attacking me.
I do not need any lessons from you.

Pradeep -
I think the concern was when you said that the exam wasn't very hard. Some people might think you mean that since the exam is easy, getting 100% is no big deal. Just my guess.
Anyway, this is NOT an easy exam, my guess is there aren't tougher ones anywhere in the industry... does anyone know of an exam they think is tougher?

I would put SCEA part 1 tougher than SCJP.

I wouldn't. I thought that SCEA Part 1 was much easier to score higher in then the SCJP. However it is very difficult to score perfect on any exam, even those easy Microsoft ones.
Regardless, as to the original question from Bert... the CISSP or CCIE exams are generally considered much more difficult than the SCJP (or pretty much any other certification), though they cater to completely different audiences.

I think SCJP is resonably hard but I'm not sure if it is actually of much benefit, other than a steping stone to the SCJD, which I believe is a very good cert(pass or fail)

Deep,
Congratulations on your awesome score.
My score was about three-fourth of yours
I feel certifying vendor should refund the exam fee to candidates as a token of appreciation for acing in this manner
True to your name you are shining in the crowd
Keep it up (Very Difficult Isn't it?)
Best wishes

Hi,
I agree with Pradeep that there must be lots of them scoring 100%. To be honest, SCJP is tough but the world is flooded with java experts. Obviously not everybody goes for this exam. Credit goes to java itself that so many ppl wants to master this language. However, not all the experts take this exam as they don't have to take this exam to prove their ability ;-).
Anyways, is there any list where I can find out how many ppl have got 100% score in this exam? Just for knowledge sake....
May be Bert/Kathy will know this.
Cheers,
Deep

I think Pradeep said the exam was not that tough because either he studied very well for it or he had a lot of java experience.
IMO, I think the exam was not that hard, but only for 2 reasons:
1o) I studied my ass off.
2o) I used Dan's mock exam.
If you are well prepared, no exam is hard.

Hi Deep,
Great!
Getting 100/100 is not so easy. You did it, great!
I was also aiming at 100, but I got only 93. There might be lot of people who might have lost only one question.
Great job!
