Cleared SCJP5 yesterday. Thanks a lot for K&B5 book. Also thank you people and this great site.

I did well in the first one and a half hour. Then I felt a little thirsty, but drink wasn't permit during test. It gave me a little trouble in understanding the rest questions. My score is too low, only 63%. Anyway I passed it.

Here's my preparation. I got the K&B5 book in later March. I read it twice, tested snippets and did self test at the fist time, and made notes at the second time. Then I did mock exams and read online material for 10 days. I did full-time preparing.

Is it a real policy of Prometric like no drink and white paper during exam? Thanks for advance.

Now move to SCWCD.

Hi Jegon:
I read a Java book from beginning to intermediate two years ago, and it gave me Java concepts.

For the preparation, I spent about 37 days.
28 days for reading. Three days went through chapter 1 of an ebook "Think in Java 3rd Edition". After receiving the K&B5 book, I spent 16 days reading it for the first time. I practised every single code and did all the self test. Then another 9 days reviewing the book, made index cards for Two-minute-Drill and took notes for what I thought very important or not so clear. Also did the self test again. I am doing part-time job, so most of these days, I studied full-time, most about 6-8 hours per day, even more sometime.
9 days for mock exams and notes. Took notes for the trick questions.

Quick through self test, index cards and own notes before exam.

Lists of mock exams:
MaserExam 1,2 with K&B5 book
Test104 demo: www.test104.com
Whizlabs demo exam
examulator exam: http://www.examulator.com/phezam/login.php
Javabeat 1, 2: http://www.javabeat.net/javabeat/scjp5/mocks/index.php
J@Whiz1.4 30 questions

And this site is absolutely great, always check here, we can get new exam information.
