Thanks go out to all who post on this site for helping me pass the SCJP with an 80% score. I haven't posted much but have been able to find many answers to questions I had along the way by searching the forums. Special thanks to Bert and Kathy for your excellent study guide book which was my main resource and training tool. I strongly suggest this book to anyone who is thinking about taking the SCJP exam. Fot those who are interested, I prepared for the exam by reading the K&B book about 3 times and doing as many mock exams as possible. I also found it facinating how close my actual score was to my score on Marcus' mock exam: 78% on his and 80% for real!
