Cleared SCJP 1.4. Today I cracked the exam with 95%. ( 58/61)
Thanks to all of you and javaranch.com. I wanted to share my story with you all.
I have been working with core java last 1.5 years. I started preparation for the exam from mid March. Solved almost all mock tests on the java ranch mock exam link. Completed C & B book. Completed Khalid Mughal book.

Mughal book was having 2 practise exams of whiz labs. Solved that and scored 85 percent in both of them on the day just before the exam.

For the new students, I will like to share my personal tips for the exam.
1. Regulary give the mock exams. ( At least 1 exam a day)
2. Start preparing your own notes for the exam from the first day you start reading.
3. Visit java ranch every day. And read the complete logs for the day. Read that till the end.
4. C & B two minutes drill are really helpful on the day before the exam.
5. Threads, read the topics for the synchronise from complete reference and sun hand book.

Also, I would request moderator to send me any upload location where I can ypload my notes( offcourse if you allow me to do so). Which will be helpful for other ranchers.

Again thanks to you all.

Congradulation!!!

When I barely pass the exam (I didn't yet) ..but when I do, I wonder if the score matters ..I mean would all my co-workers ask me how much I scored? :-)

I want to know how much energy to put on studying...

I mean it's great to get high grades but if you barely pass, is that a bad reputation?

Forget about co-workers, do employers care when you apply for a job?

I know it's not a specific question but need to just discuss how the workplace looks at grades..

Congratulations Nilesh! Thanks for all the tips on how you approached studying for the exam. I am just beginning to study this weekend. Fantastic score!! And I'm looking forward to you posting your notes. Very nice of you.

For those who do not do as well, (a question was asked here in response to Nilesh's post), I believe that you do not have to divulge your score to your coworkers if you don't want to. And I've never had an employer ask me my scores (I'm certified in a couple of other things unrelated to Java).

Again, cheers!

Read the complete logs for the day, read all to the end


Sorry to ask what could be termed a silly question..when you say "logs" are you referring to the posts of the day? or am i missing something.
Thanks
