Hello!

This is my first post although I've been reading posts for almost 3 months. Today I presented the certification and got 86% on my first try. I didn't think there would be such hard questions, fortunately I prepared myself with lots of mock exams and the K&B book. It's really great to see that the hard work paid off.

Thanks to all the people in the SCJP forum. I really learned a lot there.

I didn't try the whiz exams. I did the ones in K&B book, including the ones in the cd and online. Also did some online exams. The real exam is clearer than many of the mocks online and the codes are smaller. I'd say some questions are easier, but in general the difficulty is almost the same. I think the hardest questions are those about threads. I also got about 70% in the cd exam. But those "choose all that apply" questions are way harder. Be sure to re-read all questions and exam watchs. They are very useful.

Thanks to everybody! And I'll keep reading questions and trying to give answers whenever possible.
