I actually took the test on Dec 5, but because the test site had printer problems and forgot to tell prometric to send me my score report. I didn't get my score report till today (the 29th). I began studying off and on in late august.

66% Declarations, Initialization and Scoping
90% Flow Control
70% API Contents
75% Concurrency
70% OO Concepts
30% Collections/Generics
72% Fundamentals

Prior to going into the exam, I knew I wasn't comfortable with Generics so my results wasn't surprising.

Resources, I used:
1. java.boot.by
2. Sybex Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide, 5th edition (The review questions were too easy)
3. Programmers Guide to Java Certification, 2nd Edition (the review questions were challenging)
4. Javaranch scjp forum
5. Mock exams on this site.

I did at least 8 mock exams, unfortunately they didn't have Java 5.0 content. When I took those Marcus mock exams, I got 75%, 70% and 78% for each exam.

Now, I'm going to study for SCWCD.
