Hi Javarancheros,

I passed the SCJP 5.0 with 91% this morning and I just wanted to thank you all, and especially the bartenders and ranch hands who spend so much time answering questions on this forum. It was really helpful.

Thanks !

Joel

Congratz! How long did you prepare? What did you do for preparation?
What mock exams did you use? What was the difficult part of the exam?
Was it easier compared to Master Exam?

I've been studying on it part-time for about three months, I prepared this way :

- Read the K&B book and did the self-tests.
- Took the Master exam -> 65 %
- Read the book again, did the self-tests again.
- Practiced on this site (paid to access all the questions) : http://www.examulator.com/phezam/login.php
- Read Dave Allen's notes many times : http://holoquest.org/other/scjp5_webnotes.html
- Took the Master Exam again -> 85 %

And everyday I spent some time on the forums, and played the rules roundup quite often until I scored 100% all the time.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY I coded many small examples to clarify any doubt that I had on any point either in the book or in the exams or in the prep notes.

Good luck !

Congratulations!!

There is nothing like programming small programs to clear doubts.
Good Job.
