Thanks to all for the help I have found here, I have passed the SCJP 1.5 with a 90% today! My thoughts is that it was much easier than I thought it would be, once I had gotten about 15 questions in I felt it was fairly easy and I would do fine. The thanks goes to this place and the great prep materials that I had. The principal things that got me through this were:
6. The questions that Bert Bates and Kathy Sierra posted from their upcoming book. Although there were only 11 of them, some of the principles they taught were EXTREMELY helpful. I wish I could have waited for their book! That's ok, I'm on to their SCWCD exam book
Thanks again to all, and good luck to those still preparing for the exam!

Thanks again Agrah! And I am sorry for misspelling your name earlier!
Mikalai, thank you for the congratulations, and thank you even more for the study notes! Those are really an amazing resource, I was so glad to have them. You are doing an enormous favor to many of us to have them up, especially with so little material for the 5.0 exam currently available.
Thank you, as well, Marcus! One other thing I forgot to mention regarding the examulator is that while the whizlabs simulators were great for me during preparation, I thought that the examulator was the best tool to use to be sure you are ready for the exam. While the whizlabs simulator were harder than the real exam, I really felt that the level of questions in the examulator were just about the same level of difficulty as the real exam. If you do well on your questions, I feel that most would do well on the real exam, as well.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Thanks for the congrats Bert, I'm honored! Having read your 1.4 certification book and having started the head first servlets and JSP book, I just wanted to thank you and Kathy, both, for everything that you have done for the Java community - including running this place . Thanks to all others who have a hand in running java ranch and to Bryan Basham, as well... learning is seldom this fun .
