Got back this morning from passing the SCJP 5.0 exam. I've taken it before and failed it. It's such a relief to pass it :-)

Only 68%, but I'm very happy to have it done!!

Thanks to Bert and Kathy for such a great study guide. I wouldn't have been able to do it without that guide. BTW, on my failing occasion, I didn't have the newest version, so I believe the new version is what made the difference.

Let me make you feel better about that 68%. I passed mine yesterday with a 62% after failing it the first time with a 52%. I studied hard for that exam and am proud of it! I just wished I could play around with the newer features a bit more. My best score within the score was Concurrency (83%) which stunned me. The low scores were in the new topic areas tho Collections brought up my Generics section score.

Let me say that anyone who passes the SCJP should not be afraid to post a low score!! You passed a very tough exam that has caused alot of my fellow associates to jump to .NET because it's easier. In the office, there are quite a few MCSD associates who were ex-Java because of the SCJP exam. One guy took the entire MCSD tests in 10 days and he said that the SCJP exam was more tougher than getting the MCSD.

In short, you passed the SCJP!! Enjoy the achievement!! I am:-)
