Hi All,
Just cleared the SCJP 1.4 exam with 96%. (59/61)
Am quite happy about it and want to thank everyone at the forum for the great tips.
Would like to especially thank Dan Chisholm for his mock tests.
Those test were the only preparation I did for the exam.
Taking those tests was a real humbling experience
Regarding the exam, I was really thrown off by the number of questions with 'will fail to compile' answers; the first 6 or so code exhibits all had compile time errors. There were a lot of questions on threads.. lots!, just one on Garbage collection. Quite a few on the collections api and horrid questions on overloading and overriding combined with threading.
Anyways, guess I've been rambling a little too long ...... Thanks to all and all the best to anyone whose gonna take this test.
Cheers,
Ryan
