Did you take mock exams? If not, I think that's what you need to do. If so, what were your scores on the mock exams?

Hi Chris !

Sorry to hear this...

BTW, what exam were you taking and what study material you used ?

regards,
MZ

Thanks Marc and Mikalai. It was for 1.5, I took a mock exam in the back of that Sybex 1.5 cert book, and got a %40. Lately I've been studying a mock exam from certkiller.com. It's strikingly similar to the real thing. Do you know of any other great, free, online mock exams? Thanks.

Hi Chris,
If you are not in a hurry, you should try to read other materials,
like Bert's new book:
SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055)

Good luck

I don't think the mock exams alone are enough! You have to study, to read, to try yourself, you don't learn much new just by doing mock exams.

Chriss, I am sorry you failed. Keep studying and try again. I have used the same book as you, couple of other short texts on generics and collections (mostly Sun tutorials), and I have passed with 87%.
