Hi Ranchers,

I am a silent memeber of this forum. I cleared SCJP yesterday with about 4 days of preparation. My experience was pretty bad!!

I chose to attend a prometric center in Jayanagar,Bangalore. It was one of the biggest mistakes of the day. There were problems from the start.The person incharge of the exam came half an hour late... and I started the exam after about 45 mins late from the scheduled time.

Just about an hour into the exam... BOOM! the software stopped, some windows critical message was displayed and everything got locked. Partly tensed, partly cursing my luck , I called for help. Things were restored and I continued answering till the same thing happened again after about an hours time. Well the only thing I was hoping was that my previous answers were intact.

Luckily my answers were intact.. but while revising ,when I clicked on task button for drag and drop questions it displayed a messgae "Your answers will be reset if you would like to see the question. Continue? yes ? no?" I was shocked cos I just didnt want anything(or drag and drop sequence) to get reset at that point of time.
All in all I just wanted to get over with it and clicked on submit. Was relieved that I cleared the exam.

The exam has a good mix of easy and tough questions, threads and generics were tricky. Good lot of questions dealing with inner classes and arrays.
Overall the exam is easy and with good preparation, you are sure to do well.
Good Luck,Cheers!

Congratulations!

Try for prometric at Kormangala or NIIT kormangala.
I am sure you will have good experience there.

Congrats Supradeep!

Inspite of the test environment, you DID IT!

I wrote SCJP a couple of days back with NIIT Prometric @ Residency Road, it was pretty good.

All the best.
