I thought I was too old to study, but I did it.

Thanks to Kathy & Bert for their excellent book. Everything on the exam is nicely covered in their book. I read it twice to get a good handle on the topics. Re-read all the "exam watch" alerts day before the exam.

I also read Khalid Mughal's book and did Whizlab mock exams which come with the book.
I took tons of freely available mock exams like:
The JavaRanch Rules Round-up
Marcus Green's Mock Exam
Bill Brogden's Mock Exam
www.javacertificate.com
Also used Corey McGlone's Blog "The SCJP Tipline".

Finally thanks to JavaRanch, It rocks!

Great score
Can you let me know if there are any survey questions before the exam starts and is the clock ticking when you take those, someone had posted earlier (see the link )

Survey Question

that the questions ask about a persons experience level or how comfortable he felt on each of the objectives is it true and if so does the questions differ based on the answer ?

There was a survey asking about your expertise level. Without wasting much time I quickly checked expert level for all the questions. It would be unfair if the exam questions changed based on the answers to this survey. As far as I remember clock did not start with the survey.
Next was supposed to be the actual exam, Clock started but it first prompted for some disclaimer stuff and "I agree/I don't agree" type of questions. It did take few seconds away from the allotted time.
Overall I would say there was just enough time to answer all the questions and review some of the ones you have doubts about.
Good luck!
