I thought I had scored a pretty good result with 80% but looking through this forum there are some amazing scores. Anyway, I'm happy. Threads were my lowest scoring topic. In general I found the code examples to be a lot simpler than some of the ones appearing on the mocks out there - I guess this is a good thing as if you can score well on the mocks you should score well on real thing. To be honest though I found my K&B the most useful resource and only did 4 different mock exams - maybe I should've done more??

Bruce,
Congratulations! 80% is a great score! It's hard to keep that in mind if you hang out at JavaRanch too much, (there are lots of overachievers here ). Just remember these two things:
1 - The SCJP is considered one of the hardest certifications in the industry.
2 - Passing grade is 51% !!
OK, three things...
3 - You got a friggin 80% !!!
