Hello,
I passed with 77% on 27th feb 2004.Score is not too good but that is quite close to what I aimed for(80%).After I gave the exam they told me that we will send u urs temorary certification at home since there is some problem in the printer. And before that temporary certificate I got the real one from Sun.:-)
On the examination day my concentration was not at all good but then also I was able to solve most of the question in the first 50 minutes of the exam.I should say that happened because of the mock exam that I practised(approx. 1000 questions).
Now let me thank all those who have helped to clear the Sun Certified.
Paul Wheaton for creating this great site and all others who are releated to this great site.
Maha Anna--
She is too good.I read the stuff at her site and many of the tips and the messages that I found in the discussion forum was a great resource for the certification.Anyone who want to get certified should follow her blindly.
Marlene Miller--
I am really impressed by the knowledge that he has. He is so eager to help others.
Chisholm--
The 19 test provided by chisholm are really great ones.They are hard but ones you go through them u will be confident that u will score good marks.

Marcus Green-- Dont waste his test keep it as final mock exams.Final score is often too close to what u will get in this two exams.

Jessica Sent---
Her replies are to the point and very helpfull.
I would also like to thank other active participant of the SCJP discussion board.
CONCENTRATE ON:
Threads: U r going to get atleast 5-7 questions on this topic alone.Both code based and theory based.Read it nicely.
Java.util:This was my weak point becase what I learned was from the mock exams and then also I got 100% in this section.Just try to concentrate on important classses and Interfaces. Make urs own notes that will help u.

FINALLY:
Let me end my post now.But before I do that I would like to say to others who are preparing for the certification is that
--even if someone tell u 1000 different ways to clear the certification the best way will always be to solve the Mock exam. And then to improve urs negative point by writing small code and reading those topics from the book.
--Make urs own notes.Shortcut of taking notes from others wont help u.U can add other's idea to urs notes in ur own words.
Best of Luck to all those ranchers who are working to make there dream come true.Just dont leave it before getting it.

Thanks Hari,Nandini
One more thing I would like to say is that when u solve mock exams try to solve at least 60 questions(except chisholm ).I think except chisholm test most of the test question could be solved as a 60 question set.U can take two small test together.
I lost 5-6 question just because of this single mistake.The more u will be closer to the real exam the more percentage u will get.I hope that others will agree too.
