Hi guys

Passed SCJP 1.4 today with 91%. Lost 5 questions in total - but I felt the questions are very easy, atleast easier with all the tricks learnt on this site and many more sites. Thanks a lot to K&B for that wonderful book. I've been on this forum for many days, but now I think I'm confident to answer other queries.

Regards,
Bhaarthi

I found thread question ok,
easy if you have read k&b thread and are well versed with it.

if you know concepts well it should be no problem at all.

just be cool and calm, you will do well.
ALL THE BEST.

Hi Anjali

I was also worried abt the thread questions previously, but those are really easy in the exam, I lost a question in it though. But the garbage collection questions are really tricky, pay very close attention to that topic while preparing, and understand the concepts thoroughly. All the best for your exam!

Regards,
Bharathi

Hai Anjali,
In my question paper thread questions were really very long,cumbersome and twisting as well as GC questions.Be good in postincrement and preincrement operators.Also differenciate b/w extends and implements.craM ranges of numbers.see assertion notes from sun's site.Just i can be sure for these only

Itisha,

k&b refers to book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates,
Sun Certified Programmand and Developer for Java 2 by kathy and bert (k&b).

Khalid is a very good book even I bought it but later my friend gave me k&b.

Khalid is very much indepth and intense it includes too many things and goes much in details, k&b is not that indepth fun to read and many people consider it enough for SCJP exam.
