Hi All,
A relieved soul speaking now Ya, today I passed SCJP 5.0 with 98%. No doubt, I am happy about the score. Hmm, about the actual exam, it was intriguing and made me think a lot, especially on Thread. But, I feel, if your basics are clear, it is all about application of those basics.

I became regular hitter of javaranch from the past 20/25 days and only after that got K & B Book. I must thank both of them. It was a really great exercise to have a go at questions at the end of each chapter. Lot of them are very thoughtfully done. Thanks for making my pre-certification life tuffer!! Secondly, thanks Javaranch which definitely helped a heaven!

One more thing I would like to add is it helps if you practice. And when you take a piece of code, try to play around it, do this, do that. The understanding increases by hands-on!

I plan to note those nitty-gritties and put them on some blog sooooon.

Thanks Bert and Everyone!!
And Prathima, about guidelines for studying
1) I had gone through Philip Heller,Simon Roberts some 4 months back.
2) Then I caught hold of K & B. I personally feel K n B is pretty handy for the exam. I like the challenging questions which mixes one concept with other.
3) I have been regular visitor of Javaranch and thank them for their contribution.
4) I took the K n B Master Exam and Bonus Exam. They were good. I did not like the bonus exam because it did not have 5.0 stuff. They need to update that exam soon.
5) Complete your whole course at least 4/5 days before the exam and solve a good number questions.
6) If you are through with the basics, PAY FULL ATTENTION DURING THE EXAM.
7) There were some interesting questions on Thread. Understand and practice Thread and Generics.

Take good nap before the exam and give it best shot!!

Best Luck.

Java Rulz,
--Ashish

Hey Ashish,

I'm concerned that you said the bonus exam didn't have any 5.0 stuff ?

I wonder if the Learnkey people sent you the old version! Can you clarify that you didn't get any 5.0 questions when you took the bonus exam?

Thanks,

Bert

I totally agree with Ashish. Its some days ago, but I remember that when I wanted to download bonus exam, there was available only CX-310-035 version.

Hi Bert,
I confirm that I had to go thru 035 and not 055 at that time. I took the bonus exam some one month back.

About other book, I had referred Philip Heller
