Hi everybody

I passed the CX-310-035 exam (SCJP) today and got a score of 85%. I finished all questions about 20 minutes before the exam end, and used this time to review my answers. I'm satisfied with my result, because I prepared myself only on evenings and weekends for few weeks. Here's my braindump.

Be prepared for thread programming, I got many question about it.

Memorize the operator precedence table, e.g. take a look that type casting has higher priority than multiplication or division.

Also know all keywords as well reserved words, e.g. the word "implement" can be used as a variable name unlike "implements", which is a keyword. If you are a C/C++ programmer forget the keyword "unsigned", which doesn't exist in Java, but was present in a Java exam question. Before you pay attention to a programming code, check it for compilation errors like "unsigned byte". This saves a lot time during the exam.

Write code to instance an object of an inner class, I found two questions about it. Be familiar with switch statements without break, different array declarations and initializations, know differences between String and StringBuffer, exception handling, creation of default constructors, using assert statements.

The learning programs like Transc.., Whizl.., JQpl.., CramMast.. or the document called Test Kin.. are definitely very helpful. They provide sample tests similar to the real exam. They will show you, what exam subjects to learn more intensively. If you do some sample tests and understand answers, I am sure you will pass the exam.

Thanks everybody for hints, especially on this wonderful website.

Best of luck to you! (sometimes you may need it :-)
