Hi guys,
I have passed the SCJP1.4 last monday(May10) with 68%...I was expecting around 75%....but threads and carbage collection..tripped me got low scores in those sections...I had no prior experience with JAVA.. Here is my recipe for passing.
Read patrick naughton book for three months on the cert topics..practiced little bit.
Took mock exams ..every now and then to see where I am at..
Bought K&B three weeks before the exam date and been through that twice and took the mock exams ...K&B helped me to focus on exam objectives with care and really helped me to improve my confidence level to take the exam..
Thats it ..I should have practiced to get good score..but I guess this is OK..Now I am wondering what to do next..Guys you can throw some suggestions..
Mock exams I have used ..
Marcus Green exams
Exam Gram free exam
Dan's Mock tests
Javacertficate.com exams
I thank you all to help achieve this.

Regards,
Karthik Gurunathan

Hi karthik
Congrats!..
Your reference's really useful for me.
Get some sample projects from sun or other websites (search google)and do practice with it first, it will be very helpful for you.
