Hi all,

I passed SCJP 1.4 with 85% . I would like to thank this great forum.I did not ask/post much but I have been searching for answers here when I run into something. Keep the good thing going guys. I have come often to this results forum looking for inspiration and advice,I have always found it in super sized doses.

I learnt more about Java preparing for this exam than I did during my masters in cs or my silicon valley job.It was humbling to know how much I did not know. I am glad I took the decision to get certified and the learning experience was wonderful.

I have the Just Java Book 5th ed by Van der Linden which I always use as my reference

For the exam I used the Java Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.(You would think study guides were serious tomes!!!).It feels like I am preaching to the choir but what the heck--It was a great book!!!

One piece of advice ,get to the test center ahead of appointed time , I am counting myself lucky that I did(it is so unlike me to do so) .I reached my center in Sacramento one hour ahead of time , only to find them grappling with a virus problem(but it did not affect me or get to me).You do not need any additional stress when you take the exam.

Thanks!
