Just returned from the exam place, Marcus Green's law was effective again, I got 91%, 87%, 92% on his three mocks yesterday(excluding those of AWT and IO), and today I scored 91% with the real SCJP exam.
I have no real Java programming experience, if there is anything in my work to do with Java, it might be JavaScript, we do lots DHTML daily and other Microsoft relatd technology but not including C# that Java clone. Anyway, I am still an experienced programmer, though not on Java yet.
Below is what I have gone through for the exam:
1. Bought Thinking in Java 2nd last year, and finish the first eight chapters.
2. Bought RHE 2nd a few months ago, read its SCJP parts twice
3. Bought K&B, read it twice.
4. Writing about 3,000 lines of code(not including {}, empty lines, comments etc.) in Eclipse 3.0 to verify how JVM will work.
5. Read Velmurugan Periasamy's study notes twice last week, I wish I had read it earlier, because it has so many points listed there which took much time with coding to find out myself. And a little more than enough for the exam . Do you still visit this forum, thank you very much Velmurugan!
6. Spent the whole seven days on exam preparation(I asked for leave) doing the mock exams, but there are too many .
Though a little unsatified with my final score, I did expect more.
And thanks everyone in JavaRanch forum, I didn't ask many questions, but did learn a lot lot from tricky ones proposed by you guys!
Next stop: SCJD, see you there
