Hello.

I'm a rather passive user of JavaRanch, I've waited to post my first message after passing the SCJP exam... and here it is

I've just passed the SCJP 5.0 exam with 98% (71/72).

Thanks to K&B for wonderful book and all active ranchers who posted many helpful informations on forum.

I have over 3-year experience in Java programming, mostly Web applications.

When it comes to preparation - I read "Thinking in Java, 4th edition" by Bruce Eckel and "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide" by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates twice.

I've prepared for about 6 weeks, spending a few hours every day doing mock exams.

I used to score about 75-85% on the mock exams (every took me about one hour). The real exam took me 105 minutes, and I think it is easier than most of those mock exams, but it is much more stressful...

I suggest to read questions carefully - most of them are really easy but tricky - watch for missing imports, variable usage out of scope etc.
