Well, I knocked off the 1.4 exam with an 85%. Had some difficulty with garbage collection and threads. Other than that I pretty much got everything else correct. I probably would have done better if I had used the forums here to ask questions.

I want to understand threads and garbage collection better before I start studying for the JSP and servlet exam.

Advice for studying for the SCJP?

1. Read.
2. Code.
3. Do the questions at the end of the chapters
4. Review the chapters you think you may have difficulty with.
5. Write a few practise exams (paper and computer) over a couple of days.
6. Go over concepts you are having difficulties with the day before.
7. Get a Good Sleep before the exam.
8. Wake up.
9. Do some LIGHT review.
10.Write the exam (in the morning).
