Hi,
Squeaked thru SCJP 5.0 with 62%. Did NOT deserve to pass for a week's sketchy preparation (with 3 yrs Java programming exp )
Did not do ANY full-length mock tests except for one in the year 2004 that I flunked
Solved stuff off and on. Did not solve any questions whatsoever in 5.0 features

Major credit to two factors
1 Mark Hanlon for his post on March 24, 2006 10:57 AM. Saw this 48 hours before the test when had reached total panic stage - Spent two whole days learning all concepts of Enums, Generics, Threads and new 1.5 features. I snagged 20 questions on these.
2 K&B Book for 1.4 - Taught me more threads that 3 yrs work.ex. could

Tempted to call it FATE and DESTINY but is actually sheer dumb luck

Hi Maddy, congratulations to you !

I would have been a little scared to take any exam with such a preparation but well, you did it, which means you have what it takes to be certified.

Once again, congrats !
