Hi folks,

Cleared SCJP 1.4 on 14th May with 77%. Guess they have made it a real tough exam with first 12/13 problems only on threading. Also the problems are pretty tough and need thorough understanding of the concept.

Problems that I faced while preparing for this exam:

1. Lack of good study material. Lots of material is available for SCJP but that is for 1.2 and not 1.4. Even if you drop AWT & IO problems from these mock exams, the remaining problems are of little help as those kind of problems are no more asked in the real exam.

2. Lack of knowledge regarding the exam pattern. The SCJP exam has changed a lot. Simple Qs like type conversion, assigning boolean to an int etc are not asked. Also the code snippets given are too long and complicated. So one needs to practice that.

All in all it was a good experience. And remember Threading is any day better than mugging up AWT API's.

Best of luck...
