Hi All,

I am glad to say that I passed SCJP 1.4 and scored 93%. I found the questions in Thread and Garbage collection very tricky. Since I had taken up the mock exams of K&B and went through the explanations provided in the chapters, I was able to score 100% for the two of them.

I lost in an interface question and on flow controls, rest were 100%.

K&B for java programmer certification is an excellent book. I have also now purchased the web component book and the EJB book written by K&B. I find them really interesting.

I must also thank Dan Chisolm, especially for the inner class chapter. It explains the concepts soo well.

Thanks to all the ranchers for answering all my queries.

Thanks,
Ramya.

That gives me some confidence. I have scored 86% on the K&B's test yesterday. But then I realized that I was really poor on the interface. Also I have noticed that I make mistakes on simple questions only.
After revising interface section, I feel confident now. I scored 86% on the Marcus Green's free mock test.
Since I have 3 more days to prepare, I hope to score good in the test. The comments in this forum is really helpful.
