Hi Ranchers,

I passed scjp5 2 days ago. It was great day.

And how about my preparation?
I started to use Java at work a year ago. It is the best preparation to code 8 hours a day in Java.
Then of course I bought a fantastic K&B(Thanks a lot) book which explained me a lot of concepts I did not know and went through it 3 times.
Then coded a lot of small programs to verify what I had learned. And finally - Whizlab tests. I took me almost 4 month.

Real exam is litle easier than mockups(my best score was 87%). And also
time is sufficient. I finnished 15 minutes before time passed.

My strategy on exam was not to review questions.
1. Drag&Drop questions can not be reviewed (they get cleared).
2. I think that under the time presure is easier to make mistake than during the first pass.

I was prepared to skip complex questions but the time was suficient so I did not.

Thanks to everybody who helped me, especially to my wife.

Hi Peter,

As you can see you and I have the same last name. I found yours on a search engine. I am doing research on the Curila name and was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about your background and I would be glad to share mine with you. I can be reached at jcurila@entact.com. I do hope to hear from you. Thanks for your time.

Joe
