I must say that on this forum people make a big deal about scores acheived in exams. I thought that score didn't matter? I thought what matters is only whether u pass or fail (certified or not certified).

I don't understand why people read so much specs and docs and take so many mock test so they can get a score in 90% and above margin which is then going to be totally useless.

At the end of the day, it's not like whatever you read for the exam will be carved in your brain, you will forget everything within a couple of days. I think the only way for this information to be truly valuable is to learn it through proper work experience.

But then again this is only my opinion!

I wish you all the best.

you have a point there, M Jay.

i agreed with you, experiencing work with java is the best way to improve our skills on java for almost everyday...

focus on passing the SCJP or whatever the test or cert, it is just matter of get certified or not certified. Even a guy work with java so many years, but he never take any java cert;compared to someone get so many cert but no experience, i still prefer the guy with no cert and have experience with java.

lately, i design an application using java ... first time face this challenge, i will appreciate and enjoy every moment of it. all the best to all of you out there....no matter you certified or not certified.
