I just passed SCJP 1.4 today with 83%. I got 51 of 61 questions correct, although that would be 83.6%, it became 83% as per Sun/Prometric. Not that it's a big deal, but I'd expect them to round it to 84% instead, may be they use Math.floor() instead of Math.round()!!
The only book I read was K&B, it's an excellently writted book. Although I haven't really tried any of the other books, I seriously doubt if any of them would match up to it. I like the authors' sense of humor too.
I just saw someone mention about the Thread.setDaemon method not being covered in the book, I agree. I believe my score would've been a tad bit better had I known/read about the method. Coverage of Threads can be improved in the book.
Thanks to javaranch.com for being a wonderful/informational site.
